Hands-On Fire Extinguisher Training.
Fire District #6 will provide a free, hands-on group fire extinguisher training in your neighborhood. This training is designed for all ages and will provide actual hands-on discharge of a fire extinguisher on a real fire.
VITAL SIGN Address signs.
Is your home address clearly marked? Would our responders be able to locate your home if you were to have an emergency? Our Vital Signs are reflective and are visible from several feet away day or night. The signs are meant to be installed near a driveway to assist our emergency responders to quickly locate an address.
Vital Signs may be ordered from our District 6 Firefighters’ Association. Complete the order form below and mail it to:

Smart911 is a service that allows residents to create a free Safety Profile for their household that includes any information they want 9-1-1 and first responders to have in the event of an emergency. Then, when anyone in that household dials 9-1-1 from a phone associated with their Safety Profile, their profile is immediately displayed to the 911 call taker providing additional information that can be used to facilitate the proper response to the proper location. At a time when seconds count, Smart911 provides details that could impact response the second an emergency call is placed, which could be the difference between life and death.
