September proved to be a very active and busy month for Roseville Fire with in excess of 500 emergency responses, including multiple building fires. Thankfully, due to our fast and effective response, there were no injuries related to the fires and the property damage was kept low.
As we transition into fall please be mindful of ways that we can support ourselves and support our community. The Fire Department offers CPR courses at the fire station or at other sites if requested, as well as services like the Vial of Life. The Vial of Life is a personal information sheet you can keep in a provided pouch on a refrigerator. It provides first responders information about you, should we ever respond to your residence and you are not in a position to provide us information; information like your pertinent past medical history, medications, your preferred hospital, doctor’s contact information, etc. This is vital information we will use in an emergency to expedite your care and transport.
I want to take just a moment to invite all of you to our annual Open House on Saturday, October 16th from 9AM-12PM. We will have tours of the fire station, fire prevention and health resources available, as well as emergency and fire-ground demonstrations by our firefighters. Kids (and adults) are welcome to look at our equipment and sit in our trucks during the open house as well. This will be a great opportunity to meet your firefighters as well as see us in action!
