Here is another bit of Westerville Fire Department History. This is the 1950 Segraves Fire Truck getting ready for the July 4th parade in 1988.
A little Westerville Fire History :) Westerville Fire Department received the very 1st 9-1-1 call in Franklin County June 1987. Here are some of the pictures from that day. This was also the 1st 9-1-1 call placed in Ohio.
When reading Firehouse magazine and I came upon this! Great job Asst. Chief Gabriel! Great job Westerville Fire 150th! I’m so proud to live in this community!

With continu­ous use over time, an extension cord can rapidly deteriorate, creating a potentially dangerous electric shock or fire hazard. Do not overload extension cords or allow them to run through water or snow on the ground. Make sure the extension cord or temporary power strip you use is rated for the products to be plugged in and is marked for either indoor or outdoor use. See more tips: https://www.esfi.org/extension-cord-safety-tips/

Don't gamble with your safety! If you're using natural gas to heat your home this winter, make sure you have a carbon monoxide detector and replace the batteries regularly! Remember:
❗ If there is a leak, get out immediately & call 911.

Use your fireplace safely, by always using a metal or heat-tempered glass screen. Store cooled ashes in a tightly covered metal container and keep it outside at least 10 feet from your home and any nearby buildings.

Did you know?

Every year, an estimated 87 children drown in the home, two-thirds of which occur in bathtubs.

The unfortunate truth is that it doesn’t take much water for a child to drown, making it exceptionally important to never leave your little one alone in the bath.

Ensure you take the proper precautions around water by using the 5 Layers of Protection, even during something that is part of our daily routine.

To learn methods to minimize the risk of bathtime injury and drownings in the home, read our blog in the below 👇

Great advise from Safe Kids Worldwide

Is your family prepared for a fire emergency? Create a FIRE ESCAPE PLAN by identifying two ways to escape out of each room in your home. Here’s a template you can use. https://www.safekids.org/other-resource/home-fire-escape-plan-pdf

From our Westerville History Museum.

The original town hall, shown here to the left of the water tower on East Main, was the home of the fire department’s ladder wagon (and later fire engines) from the 1870s or 1880s to 1933. Records describe the flurry of activity around town hall when the fire alarm bells would sound. In 1928, the department got a new Seagrave fire engine (pictured here) that could go up to 50 miles an hour and pump up to 500 gallons a minute. The town hall’s driveway and garage door had to be enlarged to accommodate the new engine.

Smoke alarms are important, but so are carbon monoxide alarms.
Remember to have carbon monoxide alarms on every level of your home. Test them monthly
