Many times law enforcement officers arrive to a medical emergency, structure fire or motor vehicle collision well ahead of the fire department and EMS.
Often, the difference between lives saved and lives lost is the quick action of these officers in beginning CPR, effecting a rescue from a building on fire or treating life-threatening trauma injuries while awaiting the fire department and EMS.
Every officer that the Indianola Fire Department has had the honor of working with has been an incredibly dedicated human being committed to saving lives.

Early this morning, DMPD officers responded to assist DMFD with a structure fire at an apartment complex in the 3700 block of MLK Parkway. Officers arrived to find that heavy smoke was preventing their access to the 3rd floor.

Senior Police Officers Cole Johnson, Craig Vasquez, Tyler Kelley, and Casey Sanders quickly positioned themselves outside the building, and caught children that were dropped to them from a 3rd floor window. All are well...

Please join us in thanking these officers, and those who serve with them, for leaving their homes every day to help make Des Moines the safe and secure city that it is!

Please do not compromise fire safety by propping fire doors open. In an attempt to prevent coronavirus some facilities may feel it is best to prop open these doors so people do not have to touch them to open them. These actions can have grave consequences in the event of a fire.

Your firefighters trained on overcoming entanglement, entrapment, and disorientation.

The Advanced Breathing Apparatus Course introduces each firefighter to challenging obstacles and navigating tight spaces, blacked out with only the air on their back. This is critical training in the use of self contained air in a high stress environment.

Due to an increase in call volume and operating procedures due to COVID-19 we will be discontinuing birthday drive-bys from the fire department.
We will honor any that are already scheduled but will take no new requests. As the outbreak continues toward peaking in Iowa our efforts are needed elsewhere.
Thank you for your understanding.

This includes playgrounds, tennis courts, the baseball/softball complex, Indianola Stadium and other district owned green spaces. This decision was made to protect public health in accordance with guidance from state and county health officials.

You may have seen fire engines driving around town and hooking to fire hydrants near open fields. These are NFPA 1410 Drills and they are now part of our regular training.
They are a series of drills on deploying for a structure fire. Each month all three fire divisions will conduct one.
The crews do not know which drill they will get or when it will come in. They are dispatched out with a structure fire tone drop, but with the caveat “this is a 1410 drill”. They drive to the assigned address, an open area away from traffic, hook a hydrant and begin flowing water through attack lines.
This is great training keeping us on our toes.

During this time of staying home and social distancing, the Indianola Fire and Police Departments have begun doing birthday drive-by parades for children in town. This is our attempt to make their stay-at-home birthday a little more special.
We ask the public to please understand that we will do these as we are able during the COVID-19 pandemic. Once life returns to normal we will discontinue doing them.
Due to the nature of the duties we perform, we can not promise we will be able to honor each request, but we will make our best attempt.
Please give us a few day’s advanced notice to add these requests to our schedule.
We will only be able to perform these within the city limits so that fire apparatus and police patrol cars are not far removed from their central location.

Thank you for your understanding.

Happy 18th Birthday, Lauren!
