January Fire & Emergency Prevention Tip

Winter storms can happen almost anywhere. Know what to do before, during and after a storm. This will help keep you and your family safe from a winter fire.

• Test all smoke carbon monoxide alarms. . This way you will know they are working. 

• Plan two ways out of the home in case of an emergency. Clear driveway and front walk of ice and snow. This will provide easy access to your home.

• Make sure your house number can be seen from the street. If you need help, firefighters will be able to find you.

• Be ready in case the power goes out. Have flashlights on hand. Also have battery-powered lighting and fresh batteries. Never use candles.

• Stay aware of winter weather. Listen to the television or radio for updates. Watch for bulletins online.

• Check on neighbors. Check on others who may need help.

• Generators should be used outdoors. Keep them away from windows and doors. Do not run a generator inside your garage, even if the door is open.

• Stay away from downed wires. Report any downed wires to authorities.

• Be ready if the heat stops working. Use extra layers of clothes and blankets to stay warm. If you use an emergency heat source, keep anything that can burn at least 3 feet away.

• Turn portable heaters off when you leave the room. Turn them off when you go to bed.

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.


Sincerely,


Chief Dave Westrick
