Through professionalism, dedication, integrity, and training the Dakota Fire Protection District works to safeguard the lives and property and to enhance the quality of life of the people of the Dakota Fire Protection District. This will be accomplished by providing a vast range of emergency services, strong public relations, and fire safety education. We also endeavor to protect and preserve the health of our membership and return our personnel safely to their families.
Make sure all family members know what
to do in the event of a fire. Draw a floor plan with at least two ways
of escaping every room. Make a drawing for each floor. Dimensions do not need to be correct. Make sure the plan shows important details: stairs, hallways, and windows that can be used as fire escape routes. Test windows and doors—do they open easy enough? Are they wide enough. Or tall enough? Choose a safe meeting place outside the house. Practice alerting other members of the family. It is a good idea to keep a bell and flashlight in each bedroom.
Dakota firefighters are trained in a wide range of technical skills. Some of these skills include fire suppression, hazardous materials incidents, confined space rescue, water and ice rescue, vehicle extrication, disaster response, and fire prevention education.
