December Fire & Emergency Prevention Tip

Winter Holidays are a time for families and friends to get together.  But also that means a greater risk for fire.  Following a few simple tips will ensure a happy and fire-safe holiday season.

Holiday Decorating:

- Be careful with holiday decorations.  Choose decorations that are flame resistant or flame retardant.

- Keep lit candles away from decorations and other things that can burn.

- Some lights are only for indoor or outdoor use, but not both.

- Replace any string of lights with worn or broken cords or loose bulb connections.  Read manufacturer's instructions for number of light strands to connect.

- Use clips, not nails to hang lights so the cords do not get damaged.

- Keep decorations away from windows and doors.

Welcome from the Fire Chief

On behalf of myself, the dedicated members of the Saint Clair Fire Department (SCFD), and their families we welcome you to our website. Our mission and goal for this forum is to provide valuable and timely information regarding our department, safety tips, and call statistics.


The SCFD is charged with the responsibility of providing professional and efficient fire suppression, emergency preparedness, emergency medical services, fire prevention, and public education to our community. Our goal is to provide the highest level of service in the most efficient manner possible; to constantly safeguard and preserve life and property against the elements of fire and disaster.  We accomplish this through effective preparation, training and education; and to respond to all emergencies in a safe and timely manner with sufficient resources to address the situation. 


Within this outstanding team, the SCFD is a key member in providing community safety. We accept and embrace this challenge with vigor and commitment. As the world evolves and the needs of our community changes, our mission has evolved to one that is not simply confined to “traditional” fire services. Therefore, our mission reflects a corresponding need for our fire department to think and operate in a more encompassing manner.
