Central Headquarters 1908-Today


Remember that October 5 – 11, 2014 is Fire Prevention Week.

This year’s theme is “Working Smoke Alarms Save Lives” and we will be spreading the word about the importance of having working smoke alarms and testing them every month.

 

You are going to be seeing some exciting new changes on the Ipswich Fire Department web site.  All of the town web sites are currently being merged so that they are all integrated together making it easier to find what you are looking for.  Some of the exciting changes to the fire department web site will be information/safety blasts, Twitter and Facebook updates on emergency situations in town, and more.

So check back over the next several months and you will see many new changes.

Be Smart About Safety

You can’t predict the next disaster, but now you can plan ahead.
Sign up at www.smart911.com and create your own Safety Profile to give emergency management officials valuable information about yourself, family members, your home and even pets prior to an emergency. This information will help officials plan for and respond to you during a natural disaster, weather related incident or other emergency. It's private and secure and you control what information is in your profile. These details can save valuable seconds or even minutes during an emergency.

Seconds count when….
• There's a weather emergency.
• You are forced to evacuate.
• Power is knocked out.

Fire fighters Jeff Stone and Keith Carlson have completed a "Carfit" training course sponsored by AARP and AAA. CarFit is an educational program that offers older adults the opportunity to check how well their personal vehicles "fit" them. The CarFit program also provides information and materials on community-specific resources that could enhance their safety as drivers, and/or increase their mobility in the community. Fire fighters Stone and Carlson offer to older adults by appointment, the opportunity to come to fire headquarters for a 12 point CarFit check. Soon at a date to be announced they will be having a CarFit event at the Council on Aging.

If you have any questions or would like to make an appointment you can contact them at 978-356-6630 or email them jeffreys@ipswichfire.org  or keithc@ipswichfire.org . Please visit the CarFit website for more information.

Check if your address is properly posted and meet the requirements of Ipswich's street number by-law. Too often fire, police and ambulance service is delayed finding an address because the address number is either not posted or is not visible from the street from both directions. Please take a moment and check. It is the law in Ipswich and could save a life!
