Unexpected emergencies such as structure fires, grass and trash fires, rescues, and emergency medical incidents are handled by skilled, well-trained crews supplied with state-of-the art equipment and apparatus. East Side's crews are trained in fire suppression, emergency first-aid with defibrillation, vehicle extrication, confined space rescue, high-angle rope rescue and dive rescue/recovery.
Fire prevention activities include public education in such areas as emergency medical care, CPR, fire extinguisher use, home fire safety, wild land fire safety, and proper use of the 911 emergency telephone number. Residents and businesses also receive public education, information, fire code compliance, fire inspection, and arson investigation as a result of fire prevention activities. Our fire prevention department also participates in the planning process of commercial structures to reduce future risks of fire through the use of building plan review. Residential fire safety surveys are conducted upon request.
Our training facilities are available for use by governmental, civic and other groups within the district on a first-come first-served basis at no charge. To schedule the training room or other facilities for use, come by Station 91 to sign-up. Sorry, telephone requests cannot be accepted. You must sign-up for the facilities in person. Please be aware that should a conflict arise with a public safety class, the public safety class will be given priority. This has happened only a few times and all parties were kept happy with other arrangements.
Tours for groups or individuals will be given between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m.daily, subject to personnel availability. For advance arrangements, call Station 91 at (225) 272-7779.
