ROY CITY FIRE & RESCUE – 911 PACKET
Roy City Fire & Rescue has a safety program called the “911 Packet”. Although this program is designed for all Roy Residents, the main focus is on the senior citizen population.
The 911 Packet contains personal medical information that can be given to the fire department, paramedics, and EMT’s in the case of an emergency. It contains vital information that may be needed to provide medical care such as medical history, medications, doctor’s name(s), etc. There is no charge for the program.
|WINTER FIRE SAFETY TIPS
Here are some suggestions to help prevent fires and expedite our emergency response during the winter months:
- Do not place discarded fireplace ashes in plastic containers or cardboard boxes. Place them outside in a metal container with a small amount of water. Ashes hold heat for up to 48 hours and can reignite when mixed with combustible products.
- Use only recommended fuels in your fireplace.
- Remove the snow from all driveways and sidewalks.
- If you have a fire hydrant on or near your property, please keep it clear of all snow.
- After a heavy snow storm, clear the snow from all roof flues.
- If you have elderly neighbors, check on them to see if they need help clearing the snow from their property.
- When you see a fire truck, ambulance, or other emergency vehicles, please pull over to the right side of the road and come to a complete stop until they pass.
- Keep your chimney clean. If you need to clean your chimney, brushes are available at Station #1, 5051 South 1900 West, to be used for one day free of charge.
