Clayton Fire Department Weekly Wrap Up 11/26-12/2

Publish Date:12/04/2018 10:14 AM

This week the City of Clayton Fire Department

  • Responded to 58 calls for service (28 Fire/Rescue & 30 Emergency Medical responses)
  • Performed 15 commercial fire safety inspections
  • Accumulated 230.25 hours of training
  • Participated in 10 hours of public education/relations activities

This week’s safety message is:  The NFPA reports that during 2006-2010, municipal fire departments responded to 72,000 carbon monoxide incidents, excluding responses where nothing was found or there was a fire present.   Carbon Monoxide is a colorless/odorless gas created when fuels do not burn completely.  Incidents are more common in the winter months due to the use of heating equipment.  Carbon monoxide alarms can be purchased at any home improvement store and should be installed in the immediate vicinity of all sleeping areas. Hardwired, battery operated, or plug-in alarms may be used.  If you have an alarm activation you should call 911 immediately.

The Clayton Fire Department exists to help prepare our community for emergencies, support people when overwhelmed, and care for them in their time of need.  We want to provide a safe environment for our citizens and guests to enjoy our community and all it has to offer. 

 If you have any further questions about the Clayton Fire Department or programs that we offer, please feel free to contact Fire Captain/Public Information Officer Ryan Harrell at (314)290-8485 or RHarrell@ClaytonMo.gov
