COMMUNITY RISK REDUCTION
Community Risk Reduction (CRR) is the overall process which helps your fire department find out what the community's risks are and develop a plan to reduce the high priority risks.
The Kimball Township Fire Department's CRR division lead works with various businesses, schools, residents, and agencies to help improve the services the department offers and to increase education and awareness related to fire and life safety concerns within our community as a whole.
Included within the CRR division at Kimball Township Fire Department are:
Firefighter Right-to-Know Chemical Surveys
Site Plan Reviews
School Fire Drill Reviews
Community Event Participation
Kimball Township Fire Department’s Education & Prevention team aims to provide information to businesses within the communities we serve. The goal of our fire inspection processes and of our fire inspectors is to help ensure fire and life safety precautions are in place and are compliant with the International Fire Code (IFC) which has been adopted by Kimball Township. Please click HERE to learn more about the department's inspection process.
As conditions permit, department personnel may schedule on-site school visits. School visits must be scheduled at least five days in advance by contacting the Administrative Offices of the Kimball Township Fire Department. However, the crew that visits the school must be available for emergency calls and may need to depart prematurely from the school.
We are also investigating the possibility of doing virtual tours and school visits using various video and conferencing technologies. We will release more information on this as soon as we have the processes in place to provide this service.
Additionally, the Sparkyschoolhouse.org website provides fire safety education materials to use with preschool through grade 5. A Sparky the Fire Dog® app and eBook use real-life stories and interactive games to help kids can learn important fire-safety messages. The mobile app, for grades PreK-2, is packed with animation and games, while the eBook, for grades 3-5, mixes fire-safety messages with fascinating stories of courage, quick-witted kids, scientific facts, and more. Interactive lesson plans are also available. Music and movement videos teach kids fire safety through great beats and original moves. The videos also have Common Core aligned lesson plans for PreK- grade 1 and grades 2-3. Please visit our KID'S CORNER page for more education and fun fire and life safety related material.
Smoke Detector Program
Our Fire Prevention and Education program also provides free smoke detectors and installation services to the residents of the communities we serve with some restrictions on the number of alarms provided and household size and resident age. Please contact the Administrative Offices to inquire about this program. Please click HERE for more information.
Our The Kimball Township Fire Department welcomes visitors to our Administrative Office/Station One while our crews are on-duty. Our priority is the health of our community and our first responders. Therefore, we ask that all of our visitors be symptom free of any illnesses.
Station Tours are available at Station One which is located at 1970 Allen Road in Kimball, MI. We ask that you call at least three days in advance to schedule a formal tour. However, we understand sometimes planning ahead is not feasible and therefore, we will try to accommodate last-minute tours.
Please understand our on-duty firefighters have assigned tasks to complete while on-shift and must also be available to respond to calls for service.
The Organizational Mission of the Kimball Township Fire Department is to protect the lives and property of the people of the district from fires, hazardous materials incidents, and natural disasters; to save lives by providing emergency medical services; and to prevent fires through prevention and education programs.
