Fire department launches web tool to document potential rescue hazards


Consolidated Fire District No. 2 has launched a new web tool to make it easier for northeast Johnson County residents to alert firefighters of information that could help them save lives in the event of an emergency.

The “Critical Information Program” tool allows users to document potential “premise hazards,” like the presence of bottled oxygen for medical use or any accessibility issues for a home, that firefighters would need to know if they were attempting to make a rescue on the property.

The fire department intends to contact any residents who submit information via the site once a year to make sure that the information is still up-to-date.

To submit information, check out the Consolidated Fire District No. 2 site here.
