Home Safety Reviews
The WFD conducts fire safety inspections in all businesses in our village on a yearly basis. We also offer this program to our residents to help them have a safer living environment. The program educates the homeowner and helps them to correct any potentially dangerous situations. We offer this review upon the resident's request.
This is one of our most popular programs. We do have numerous small groups of people touring the station at any given time; however most of our visitors are scheduled groups, such as K-3 school classes. An average of 250 children tour the station each year. Includes a firefighter dressed in his/her turnout gear in order for the children to visualize the transformation from a firefighter on station to a firefighter ready to fight a fire. We also teach "stop, drop & roll", 911, home escape plans and other fire safety tips.
Blood Pressure Screening
A blood pressure screening can be given anytime someone comes to the station and requests one. We also do screenings at various fire safety outings throughout the year.
We offer this course to the general public, business community and any other organization making a request. We utilize the standards and guidelines of the American Heart Association.
Fire Extinguisher Training Course
This program is available to everyone but is mainly utilized by the business community. The training course is scheduled by appointment. The class consists of a lecture session, which includes handouts. A live fire environment is duplicated by using a shallow burn pan containing a combustible liquid. A firefighter demonstrates the proper technique used to extinguish a small fire, using a portable extinguisher. Each participant is given a chance to practice putting out a fire by themselves.
In addition to the above mention programs provided by our fire department, our educational efforts branch out into various other areas including, but not limited to: fire drills, tornado drills, life safety checks in places of assembly, safety fairs, educational sessions in the schools, juvenile fire setter program, lectures for civic groups and apparatus demonstrations.
