WATCH FOR'TAKE A MINUTE'SAFETY TIPS
Introducing your firefighters and giving you valuable safety tips
Why should I have a working smoke alarm?
A properly installed and maintained smoke alarm is the only thing in your home that can alert you and your family to a fire 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Whether youre awake or asleep, a working smoke alarm is constantly on alert, scanning the air for fire and smoke.
According to the National Fire Protection Association, almost two-thirds of home fire deaths resulted from fires in properties without working smoke alarms. A working smoke alarm significantly increases your chances of surviving a deadly home fire.
If you are a homeowner and live within the city limits, the Shawnee Fire Department will install a new smoke alarm at no charge?
Call273-4282to schedule an appointment.
If you rent, your landlord is responsible to provide a working smoke alarm on every floor. If you need a 9 volt battery replaced in an existing smoke alarm, this service is provided free of charge to home owners by calling 273-4282.
Exposing an Invisible Killer: The Dangers of Carbon Monoxide
Use the Online Fire Hydrant lookup site to check for local hydrants. You can enter the address of your home or business in the Shawnee city limits and see any hydrants within 1000 feet of the pinned address.
The mission of the shawnee fire department is to provide quality protection of life, property, and the environment to our community, through effective response, prevention, building and preparedness programs and customer service, while maintaining a high level of employee safety and professionalism.
12/12/2014 The Shawnee Downtown Christmas Parade from December 4th, 2014 as organized by Save Events for Families will replay nightly at 6pm - 7pm on local cable Ch3 and streaming at http://www.ShawneeOK.org/Live for your viewing unless preempted by other broadcasts such as City Commission Meetings. If you missed the live parade or want to learn more about the parade entries and activities catch up from the podium view.
One of those odd questions you sometimes get from you homeowners or renters insurance is something like is there a fire hydrant within 1000 feet of your home. Maybe you remember that closest fire hydrant from driving around your neighborhood but maybe not. The Shawnee Fire department has made it easy to find out just that information with their online Fire Hydrant Lookup feature. Just take a click break over to http://www.ShawneeOK.org/Fire and follow the Hydrants link at the top. There you can plug in the address in question and search for any local hydrants.
All addresses may not map and locations for both addresses and hydrants may be approximate but it most likely will answer that 1000 foot or less question for you in no time. Thats whats on the (Fire) web!
Whats on the Web is a short little review of what type of information you can find on the City of Shawnees website at http://www.ShawneeOK.org/
11/5/2014 Winter weather will be here before we know it and it presents many safety challenges. Although staying indoors as much as possible can help reduce the risk of falls on the ice or traffic crashes, you may also face potential indoor hazards.
Being prepared and following safety precautions can help you stay safe and warm through the winter season. These simple, low-cost steps that individuals and families can take to be ready include setting aside emergency supplies, making a family emergency plan and staying informed about local conditions.
Additional winter safety tips include:
- Keep space heaters at least three feet from other objects and never leave space heaters unattended.
- Test all smoke and carbon monoxide alarms to make certain they are working properly.
- During a power outage, use flashlights as lighting sources.
- Avoid exertion as cold weather puts extra strain on your heart. Remember to stay hydrated as well.
- Make sure your home address is visible and take a few minutes to clear snow away from fire hydrants.
- When utilizing alternate heating sources, such as your fireplace, woodstove or space heater, take the necessary safety precautions.
- Keep a fire extinguisher handy; ensuring everyone knows how to use it properly.
- Use portable generators cautiously. Make sure they are operated only out-of-doors in a well ventilated area. Refuel a generator only after it has cooled. Do not connect your generator to your homes electrical system except through an approved transfer switch installed in compliance with the local electrical code.

Staff has joined up with the Central Oklahoma Clean Cities as a stakeholder in hopes to be able to apply for grant monies to convert city vehicles to natural gas or propane. Stakeholders consist of individuals that work in the field of CNG/LPG, install equipment, operate converted equipment, or are looking into and tracking conversion data. Fleet maintenance has a meeting set up with LPG individuals to look at some of our equipment for quotes on conversion. Through information learned at the COCC meetings, staff has made the decision to hold off on conversions for a couple of more years. This is based on our ROI from our conversions; we need to convert vehicles running 35000 miles per year to which we do not have. We have chosen to wait and watch for the price of conversions to come down. We have also learned that UPS in Shawnee along with several other UPS locations in Ok and CO are converting all of their vehicles to propane.
