Inspections and Services

In an emergency always call 9-1-1
In addition to providing Fire and EMS Services to the community and participating in a county-wide mutual aid response system, the Department also provides other important services to the community.

Fire Inspections - The Department has four state-certified Fire Inspectors that conduct occupancy inspections on residential, mercantile and commercial facilities. Yearly maintenance inspections are scheduled for each commercial structure to identify potential hazards, update pre-plan information and assist the owners with any other safety concerns. For more information please contact

Fire prevention programs - Homeowner Associations, schools, churches and other organizations interested in fire safety can contact the department to arrange for a representative to provide a presentation to their group.

CPR AED and First Aid Programs - Evening and weekend courses in cardiopulmonary resuscitation and the use of automated external defibrillation by the American Heart Association Instructors are available to interested individuals or groups. First Aid programs are also available to individuals and companies interested in complying with OSHA requirements.

Residential Lock Box Access - There are times when an individual loses their mobility for extended periods of time and family members become concerned that Fire or EMS may not be able to gain access in the event of an emergency. The Fire Department can provide a residential lock box that will allow access to a key to the residence in the event of an emergency. The lock box requires a $25 deposit which is returned when you no longer need the box (effectively costing you nothing).

Interested individuals should contact the Department at (440) 235-3238 to obtain additional information on this program.
