Our K-9 team Theo and Lt Thompson are currently in Nashville for their annual recertification. The training is sponsored by The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation and the US DOJ Department of Alcohol, To***co, Fi****ms and Explosives. This is a mandatory certification required as part of our partnership with the ATF. There are currently only 58 teams in the US trained and certified by the ATF. They still have several more tests before they are recertified but they are doing well so far!

This is a great family event and we look forward to seeing you next year!

We would like to thank the Lake County Commissioners and the Lake County Sheriff's Office for their continued support and partnership for transferring a patrol unit to our department. This vehicle will be used as our new K-9 vehicle. This 2016 Ford Explorer will replace our 2009 Crown Vic. The new vehicle still needs a K-9 insert (cage) and heat monitoring system for the dog's safety. Our Accelerant Detection K-9 is available throughout Lake County, Northeast Ohio and as part of the ATF National Response Team they can be called anywhere in the US and its territories.

Please make sure you water your live Christmas trees daily!

'Tis the season. As you begin to decorate for the holidays, please stay safe and water your trees daily! This video shows just how quickly a dried out Christmas tree fire burns, with flashover occurring in less than one minute, as compared to a well-watered tree, which burns at a much slower rate.

Thank you so much Station 2 for making my Riverside Seniors prom time memorable! She loved fire trucks 🚒 as a child and said one day she would become a fireman. Today sharing her day with our community’s first responders meant the world to her. Bless you guys! 🖤💛Riverside Strong 2020💛🖤
Thanks to the EMS team for there quick response last night and everything they did for my grandson. He is currently at RB&C on the mend.
Anyone else see large fire flames to the north of Route 20 way out in a dark area? It’s 7:28 pm as we passed them. We think it may be at the dump?
Thank you Painesville Township Fire Department for having your trucks out in our neighborhood for the Trick or Treaters!
