The Clyde Fire Department would like to offer the following programs and services to all residents and businesses within our fire district.
Fire Safety & Preventions Presentations
For numerous years our fire safety and prevention specialists have been conducting presentations for school groups, scouting organizations, and daycare providers. These professional individuals can conduct their presentations at one of our two fire stations where they can showcase our well-maintained equipment or they can take their show on the road to a location of your choice. Presentations can be tailored to your request and are always age appropriate. We only ask that you give us plenty of advance notice to schedule and plan your presentation, as all of our personnel have careers outside of the fire service. The Clyde Fire Department is extremely proud to be a 100% paid-on-call organization, offering our fire district all the benefits of a career department at a fraction of the cost. To help continue that benefit, our non-emergency programs and services must be planned well in advance.
Fire Extinguisher Training
Fire extinguisher training is often required annually by a business's insurance holder. Our personnel can come to your location and offer a "hands-on" course or a classroom-based presentation. We only ask that you provide the extinguishers if you are planning on the "hands-on" course.
To schedule one of our services, please call 419-547-8357, and if we are not in, just leave a message and we will get right back with you. We hope to hear from you but until then, please discuss fire safety with your children and keep fresh batteries in your smoke alarms.
Smoke Alarm Program
The United States Fire Administration (USFA) tells us that the single most important step one can take to save a life during a fire is to install a smoke alarm that suits the family's needs. USFA follows by saying that a working smoke alarm can make a vital difference in the event of a fire and may reduce the risk of dying in a fire by as much as 60%. For this reason, the Clyde Fire Department has worked extremely hard over the years to ensure that every home in our fire district has at least one working smoke alarm. We know we haven't reached this goal yet but with your help, we can! If you don't currently have a working smoke alarm in your home, we will provide one to you, free of charge. If you need it installed, we can handle that task for you also.
