Alameda Fire Department
On Wednesday, March 16, The Sun had the honor of attending a demonstration of up-to-date water rescue procedures, led by our friends and partners at the Alameda Fire Department.
In January, Encinal High School (EHS) installed eight surveillance cameras in response to the overwhelming number of fire alarms being pulled throughout the course of 2019. The cameras were an attempt to deter students from pulling alarms and setting fires on campus.
When Alameda firefighters responded to a reported structure fire on Bay Farm Island, they found light smoke throughout the house caused by unattended food left on the stove. They forced entry into the home and were greeted by an unexpected occupant that was very happy to see them.
The Alameda Fire Department’s (AFD) Home Safety Program provides much-needed services to low-to-moderate income residents older than 62 and to the disabled of any age. The program provides and installs the newly required 10-year-maintenance-free smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.
