As the department evolves, so does the personnel and positions. I have stepped down from firefighter and retired my paramedic and am offering my services to LVFD and other area departments (volunteer or career) as a First Responder Chaplain. I am here to listen, talk, help, whatever our heroes need. I am not here to "convert" anyone to any one religion or belief, unless they ask personally. Here will be my suggested duties, roles, and assignments. This will go to the members of the department and the officer's responsible for making protocols, etc.

Thank you for supporting LVFD and thank you for supporting my transition.

We have completed our testing. All systems are functioning correctly.

05/28/2019

We will be testing the siren again this morning. We let everyone know when testing is complete.

05/24/2019

It was brought to our attention earlier today about a potential problem with the storm siren in town. After testing the system, the storm siren is still functioning correctly.
We still currently use the fire siren (more historical than functional) to alert fire personnel of fire calls. There was an issue found with a console at dispatch that sets off this fire siren and this will be fixed next week.
The main thing is the storm siren functions as it should and the citizens of Lacona are still protected. We still suggest everyone have a weather radio or smart phone to alert them to potential severe weather approaching. Lacona, Iowa

We would like to remind everyone about the importance of watering real Christmas trees this time of year. Please watch this video to see how fast a dried tree burns.

USFA partnered with the National Institute of Standards and Technology's (NIST) Building and Fire Research Laboratory to illustrate on video the dramatic affects of fire when it ignites a dry Scotch Pine Tree. Within three seconds of ignition, the dry Scotch pine is completely ablaze. At five seconds, the fire extends up the tree and black smoke with searing gases streaks across the ceiling. Fresh air near the floor feeds the fire. The sofa, coffee table, and the carpet ignite prior to any flame contact. Within 40 seconds, "flashover"—when an entire room erupts into flames, oxygen is depleted and dense, deadly toxic smoke engulfs the scene—occurs.

This week is Fire Prevention Week! The Lacona Fire Department wants our community and everyone else to be fire safe. Here are a few fire safety tips you can do at home to be fire safe:
1. Check your smoke detectors, change your batteries when you change your clocks.
2. Practice fire drills in your home, know where to meet in case of a fire.
3. Know two ways out of your home in case of a fire. Once your out, stay out!
4. Do not leave candles, cooking equipment, or other heat sources unattended.
5. If there is smoke, get low and stay low while getting out.
6. Teach your children not to hide under their bed or in a closet in case of fire.
7. Keep a fire extinguisher in your kitchen.

More tips can be found at the NFPA website www.nfpa.org or the USFA/FEMA website http://www.usfa.fema.gov/prevention/outreach

We’re learning more about the firefighters who bravely responded to a massive fire at the West Fertilizer plant and lost their lives in the explosion. 12 victims have been identified as firefighters. In light of the tragic event in West, Texas on Wednesday. we express our deepest sympathy to the family, friends and fellow firefighters of this courageous and dedicated firefighter. We must never lose sight that fire service is an extremely dangerous business and this brave man died doing the dangerous job they loved; protecting our citizens and our properties and making our neighborhoods safer for all of us." rip bothers
