Fire

Is CPR training available?

Yes. We offer two types of classes through the American Heart Association:

  • Heartsaver CPR AED Course with First-Aid - For the general public
  • Healthcare Providers - For healthcare professionals and those who are not medically licensed but required to have certification

Our manikins provide instant feedback to help students improve the quality of CPR compressions. Details are on our CPR page.

 

 

Can I get an address sign that helps emergency personnel find my property?

Yes! To more quickly locate your home in an emergency, our fire department offers a reflective sign that clearly displays your street address. We'll even install it for you if you like!

The 6"x18" signs can be installed easily on a mailbox post and will allow your street address to be prominently display on both sides. Our mail-in form explains more, including fees and best practices for installation.

In an emergency, how can I get the fastest medical care?

You can help crews respond effectively to a medical emergency in your home when you complete our step-by-step Vial of Life instructions. This includes:

Your medical form should be placed in a sealed plastic bag, along with your photo and, if you have them, copies of these documents:

  • Durable Power of Attorney for Healthcare
  • Do Not Resuscitate Orders (DNR)
  • Living Will Declaration

Add the seal to the bag and place it on your refrigerator door. The second decal will adhere to your storm door, front door, or side of your refrigerator. Complete information on this topic is on our Vial of Life page.

Do You Need Assistance with Vial of Life?

Seniors and at-risk residents can receive help through our STAR Program.

 


How can I make sure my child's safety seat is installed correctly?

We offer free child car seat inspections performed by SafeKids trained safety seat technicians who check the fit of both the seat in your vehicle and your child within the safety seat. Each inspection takes about 20 minutes. We ask that you bring the instruction manual for both the safety seat AND your vehicle. Call Fire Headquarters at 1-937-433-3083 to schedule your appointment.
