The Hazelwood Fire Department offers several services to residents. Find out more about each program below:
- Home Inspections - Upon request, the fire department can inspect private homes for fire and life safety hazards. The homeowner then voluntarily handles safety recommendations.
- Loan of Equipment - The Fire Department has a limited amount of wheelchairs, crutches, and walkers for loan to residents free of charge when needed.
- Safety Helmets - We promote child safety in all forms. Safety helmets for use while riding bicycles, skate boards, scooters, etc. are a must for children. One single accident can be tragic. We offer safety helmets for a fee of only $8 to our residents. This price covers nothing more than our cost and is a small price to pay for the safety it offers. We will also assist in making sure the helmet has the proper fit for your child.
- A Safe Place - Safe Place is a program where immediate access to help and other supportive resources are available for young people in a crisis. Volunteers with the program will come and meet with the youth at a A Safe Place site and assist them to obtain a number of services including counseling or a temporary shelter.
- Smoke Detectors - The Fire Department will furnish smoke detectors to Hazelwood residents who demonstrate a need for one. Landlords for rental property are required to furnish smoke detectors for their tenants.
- Tours/Lectures - Tours of our fire stations are given upon request. Fire prevention and safety talks can be arranged for your group at our fire station or on your site. We are happy to “tailor-make” our talks to suit your needs. A tour typically consists of a walk-through of our fire station, display and discussion of a safety video in our training room, and a view of equipment on the fire truck and ambulance.
- File-of-Life Program - This program aids in the correct treatment of the resident on emergency medical services emergencies. The File-of-Life program calls for keeping a resident’s medical data on a form, in a marked envelope that attaches magnetically to your refrigerator where it is available to emergency crews should the resident be unable to provide the information at the time of the illness or injury. When making emergency calls, both Fire and Police Department personnel are trained to check for a File-of-Life when first arriving on the scene.
