⟶   FIRE ADMINISTRATION OFFICE RELOCATION  ⟵
313 E MAIN ST., STE #1 HENDERSONVILLE, TN 37075

 

As most of you are probably aware, due to structural and other major problems with our location at 225 Freehill Rd (Administrative Office and Station 2), the current building will soon be demolished and rebuilt.

It is estimated to take anywhere from 12 – 18 months before we return to this location. It could be as long as 24 months depending upon weather and other unforeseen events.

During this time our Administrative Office will temporarily be relocated to 313 E Main Street, Suite #1. We will be at the new location beginning June 5, 2017. This is across the street from City Hall. Our telephone number will remain the same.

Station 2 has already relocated to the Public Works location at 223 Freehill Rd (behind the current building). This will ensure no interruption or delay in response time.

HENDERSONVILLE FIRE/RESCUE
WANTS YOU TO HAVE A
SAFE AND HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY!
 

HENDERSONVILLE FIRE/RESCUE WANTS EVERYONE TO
STAY SAFE AROUND WATER
MAKE WATER SAFETY YOUR PRIORITY
  • Swim in designated areas supervised by lifeguards
  • Always swim with a buddy; do not allow anyone to swim alone. Even at a public pool or a lifeguarded beach, use the buddy system!
  • Ensure that everyone in the family leaerns to swim well. Enroll in age-appropriate Red Cross water orientation and Learn-to-Swim courses.
  • Never leave a young child unattended near water and do not trust a child's life to another child; teach children to always ask permission to go near water.
  • Have young children or inexperienced swimmers wear U.S. Coast Guard-approved life jackets around water, but do not rely on life jackets alone.
  • Establish rules for your family and enforce them without fail. For example, set limits based on eash person's ability, do not let anyone play around drains and suction fittings, and do not allow swimmers to hyperventilate before swimming under water or have breath-holding contests.
  • Even if you do not plan on swimming, be cautious around natural bodies of water including ocean shorline, rivers, and lakes. Cold temperatures, currents, and underwater hazards can make a fall into these bodies of water dangerous.
  • If you go boating, wear a life jacket! Most boating fatalities occur from drowning.
  • Avoid alcohol use. Alcohol impairs judgement, balance, and coordination; affects swimming and diving skills; and reduces the body's ability to stay warm.
PREVENT UNSUPERVISED ACCESS TO THE WATER
  • Install and use barriers around your home pool or hot tub. Safety covers and pool alarms should be added as additional layers of protection.
  • Ensure that pool barriers enclose the entire pool area, are at least 4-feet high with gates that are self-closing, self-latching, and open outward, and away from the pool. The latch should be high enough to be out of a small child's reach.
  • If you have an above-ground or inflatable pool, remove access ladders and secure the safety cover whenever the pool is not in use.
  • Remove any structures that provide access to the pool, such as outdoor furniture, climbable trees, decorative walls, and playground equipment.
  • Keep toys that are not in use away from the pool and out of sight. Toys can attract young children to the pool.
MAINTAIN CONSTANT SUPERVISION
  • Actively supervise kids whenever around the water--even if lifeguards are present. Do not just drop your kids off at the public pool or leave them at the beach--designate a responsible adult to supervise.
  • Always stay within arm's reach of young children and avoid distractions when supervising children around water.
HAVE A FUN AND SAFE SUMMER!!!
