The Westminster Fire Department participates in many community events to actively promote fire and life safety and to support charitable causes. Here's what's coming soon:
Firefighters ask you to give a little for families in need -- What are those green bins around City Hall, Fire Stations, and other city facilities Nov. 17 – Dec. 12? A place to drop off donations for the annual holiday charity drive! Westminster Firefighters coordinate the charity drive, distributing the donations to the Have a Heart Project, Jeffco Foster Care, Westminster FISH food bank and Santa Cops. You have the chance to help the less fortunate by donating toys, clothing or non-perishable food items. Donations of new or gently used items can be dropped off at any city facility (look for the green bins!). Call 303-658-4500 for more information.
Citizen Academy Registration -- The Westminster Fire Department is offering a Citizen Academy March 5-May 28. Every Thursday from 6-10 p.m. for 13 weeks, participants explore topics such as hazardous materials, using fire extinguishers, emergency medical response, firefighter gear and more. The free course includes classroom time and hands-on experiences. Here is your chance to try on turnout gear and self-contained breathing apparatus, learn CPR and experience water rescue! Submit registration forms via email, mail or fax. For more information, contact Public Education Officer Sherrie L. Leeka at 303-658-4536 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications are due Feb. 19.
Firefighter Jeff Heineman has compiled and published "Westminster Fire Department 1934-2014, 80 Years of Service." The hardcover book is $40 and available at Fire Administration (9110 Yates St.), or by contacting Jeff at 720-530-6974 or Jeffheineman@msn.com.
Every year fires start because of faulty products. One way to be safe is to stay apprised of recalls through the public notices by UL and the US Consumer Product Safety Commission.
