The Central Fire Department will be conducting a series of active shooter/mass casualty training scenarios at the old Central Middle School site Wednesday, February 26, 2014. The training will be conducted throughout the day and also involve personnel from the East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Office, Central Police Department, East Baton Rouge Parish Emergency Medical Service, Acadian Ambulance Service, District Six Fire Department and East Side Fire Department. The Central Community School System will be actively involved providing personnel and students.
The training will stress inter agency cooperation, command and control, location and apprehension of suspect (s), and rapid triage, treatment and transport of victims.
Agencies have been preparing for several months to provide realistic training for all involved. There should be no interruption to traffic flow on Sullivan Road and Hooper Road. Citizens traveling through the area; however, may experience sights and sounds associated with the training.
Make sure every level of your home has a working smoke alarm.
Fire Safety for Older Adults
We tend to think that fire safety is just something we need to teach to kids, that is extremely important, but also we need to reach out to older adults. People are living longer and people age 85 and older die in fires at a rate 4.4 times higher than the rest of the population. Call us if you would like set up an escape plan. Below are some precautionary steps to help older adults:
Don’t leave smoking materials unattended and never smoke in bed.
Never leave cooking unattended, use a timer to remind you that you are cooking.
Place smoke alarms on every level of your home.
Know at least two exits from every room
Check that all doors and windows that lead outside have a clear path to get to them and that they open easily.
Let a close neighbor or relative know if you have special needs that may be important information for the fire department to know.
Special fire safety devices are available for people with special needs, such as: smoke alarms with flashing light or some that connect to a strobe light outside of house to let other see.
Your life and property are worth more than the time and cost of smoke detector maintenance. We urge all homeowners to keep and maintain smoke detectors! Smoke alarms have to have batteries to work. Change the batteries every six months and perform a monthly alarm check .
Be sure every level of your home has a working smoke alarm.
