DOUGLAS FIRE DEPARTMENT FIRE HYDRANT TESTING

The City of Douglas Fire Department will begin testing hydrants on Monday, May 21, 2018 and will continue through Friday, May 25, 2018.  Hydrants will be tested in the NW area of the city of Douglas which includes 441 N toward Broxton to the city limits, Hwy. 32 W. toward Ocilla to the city limits, and everything West of N. Peterson Ave. to 441 South to the city limits.  Hydrant testing will start at 9:00 p.m. each night, when there is minimum traffic, and continue until 4:00 a.m. each morning.

During hydrant testing the water will be cloudy, if so let the water run until it runs clear.  This will clear the line of any rust that might have dislodged from the pipes.  Especially before washing clothes or cooking, please let the water run clear before using it.

If there are questions or concerns, please call the City of Douglas Fire Department at 912-384-4815.

The City  Of Douglas Fire Department received a $3,500 fire prevention grant from FM Global, one of the world’s largest commercial property insurers. FM Global representatives presented the grant award to Douglas Fire Chief Larry Wilson on March 21, 2018.

Douglas Fire Department has purchased I-Pads to track fire information accurately within the department. The I-Pads will be used to assist with prefire planning to efficiently collect and track data related to local community buildings. 

“Through education efforts, we believe the majority of fires can be preventable,” says Larry Wilson, Douglas Fire Chief.  “With the additional financial support from FM Global, this grant will help our Fire Department provide accurate reporting and prevention awareness.”

Through its Fire Prevention Grant Program, FM Global awards grants to fire departments—as well as national, state, regional, local and community organizations worldwide—that best demonstrate a need for funding, where dollars can have the most demonstrable impact on preventing fire, or mitigating the damage it can quickly cause. To learn more about FM Global’s Fire Prevention Grant Program and other resources for the fire service, please visit www.fmglobal.com/fireservice.

To learn more about the Douglas Fire Department’s Safety Education opportunities for the classroom, business, and community, please call Fire Station #2 at 912-384-4815.



DOUGLAS FIRE DEPARTMENT VIAL OF LIFE PROGRAM
VialOfLifeProgram.jpg

The Douglas Fire Department would like to encourage citizens to participate in the Vial of Life Program.  The Vial of Life program is a smart way to have medical information on hand during emergencies. 

A Vial of Life Emergency Information Form will list medical information such as current medications, emergency contact, recent surgeries, procedures to avoid, allergies, and more medical information.  The form should be folded with a rubber band around it for easy removal, inserted into a medicine bottle and placed in the refrigerator at your home on the top shelf.  Affix a decal on the outside of the refrigerator so that emergency responders will see the decal and know your medical information is in the vial in the refrigerator.  It is also a good idea to place a second vial of life in the glove compartment of your vehicle and affix a decal to the outside of the glove compartment door in case of a traffic accident. 

The Douglas Fire Department’s Vial of Life program is sponsored by the Medicine Cabinet.  For more information about the Vial of Life program, call 912-384-4815.
