Fire Prevention

After spending heaps of time, money and effort buying or renting your home or investing in your business, many people are often too exhausted to even begin thinking about how to prevent hazards or accidents.  The truth is most mishaps can be easily prevented, which is why it is so important to take the necessary – and often fairly simple – measures to do so.   

 The Hazelwood Fire Department is committed to delivering the highest quality of fire protection, prevention, education, effective mitigation of fire, rescue, emergency medical, and other hazardous situations along with performing annual inspections of local businesses while remaining economically responsible to the community.  These inspections give our crews the opportunity to evaluate businesses for safe practices and standards such as proper emergency lighting and fire extinguisher safety.  These visits also allow our personnel to become familiar with buildings within the City.  In addition, we provide fire extinguisher training for business owners upon request.

  The last thing you want to do is to be confronted with a dangerous situation and find that it is too late to do something about it.Home and Business
