It is October and October is Fire Prevention Month. This is a busy month for your Sullivan Firefighters as we go around to all schools, daycare's, and businesses to teach everyone about fire safety. We look forward to this month so we can spread fire safety and help prevent any fires, and if fire occurs, how to safely get to safety. Always remember; check your smoke detectors, know 2 ways out, and have a common safe area in case of a fire.
As the season of Fall approaches and it starts to get cooler, please check and clean your flues before using them. Checking and cleaning your flues help prevent a flue fire from occurring. Fall and Winter are the prime seasons for flue fires so clean those flues and have a safe fall and winter season.
The Residential Knox Box Program helps the Sullivan Fire Protection District loan out boxes to the elderly with medial call buttons and who have medical conditions that limit their mobility. The Fire District also loans these boxes out to people who have debilitating medical conditions (such as multiple sclerosis, etc.) regardless of age.
People who want a box are required to fill out an application, a medical history form, and must provide a key for their residence. (This key is locked in the Knox Box.) At this time the Fire District notes any hazards in the residence, such as oxygen tanks, and place this information in the dispatch system as a “caution note.” Fire district members will install the Knox Box on the residence.
This program has been very successful and is a great service that the Fire District provides to residents with over 50 boxes in place. Click on the link below, fill out the application and email the application to firstname.lastname@example.org. Any questions please call the office at 573-468-6161.
