In addition to reading about our department, it’s history, equipment, & personnel, we have made available to you information that will assist you in making good choices with regard to maintaining a safe home environment. We will make available to you contact numbers that may possibly save you or a loved ones life. Numbers such as “Poison Control Center”, local hospitals, clinics, and HazMat.
In a real-time emergency it is crucial that you are able to LOCATE & CALL the appropriate emergency services so that they can respond in a timely manner. TIME is critical in an emergency situation.
