The Cottleville Fire Protection District offers a variety of programs to make our community a safer place to live and work.
Practice is the key to effectively responding to an emergency. To help our community members prepare for fires, and other disasters, CFPD provides training programs for our residents and businesses.
In an emergency, a well-rehearsed plan can save lives. The Cottleville Fire Protection District can help your business or family create an effective emergency plan. Contact us at 636-441-8799 or e-mail us to schedule your training.
Emergency Planning Resources:
Through the citizen-led CARES (Citizens Advancing Responsible Emergency Services) program community members have had an opportunity to learn more about all aspects of the fire and emergency rescue service and assist in creating a long-range plan for CFPD.
Through a series of CARES meetings, participants heard an informational presentation, and then provided feedback that was used to formulate the recommendations for the long-range plan. These recommendations are now being developed into a long-range strategic plan with annual operational objectives.
The Cottleville Fire Protection District offers portable fire extinguisher training for businesses, schools, and organizations of groups as small as 10 up to 25 participants. The training will consist of a 30-minute classroom presentation followed by a safety briefing and a practical Fire extinguisher exercise. Total estimated time, of course, is 1 1/2-2 hours. Training classes are held in the spring and the fall each year. This program will be offered free of cost to our business and citizens of our Fire District. A site inspection may be required of your facility prior to the class to determine if it meets the needs of the program. You can fill out the online request form by accessing it by clicking here.
