Broadcaster Press 7 May 21, 2019 www.broadcasteronline.com To all those whose office phone number is 9-1-1 ~Thank You~ Thank you, Vermillion Fire EMS Department Awards and Recognitions The following EMS personnel were recognized in 2018: Vermillion Fire EMS would like to extend our sincerest thanks to the businesses that employ our fire and EMS personnel. Many of our paid on-call and volunteer members need to leave work at times in order to quickly respond to emergencies. Moreover, on occasion, they may need to make adjustments to work schedules in order to provide coverage or attend important trainings. Without the understanding of their employers (as well as the USD administration and faculty who have our student EMTs in their classes), the Vermillion Fire EMS Department would not be able to operate. Thank you for making our community a better place!

The Knox-Box It's 2 a.m. The fire alarm in your building is ringing and the Fire Department responds. Rather than reaching for an ax to break down the door, Firefighters open the Knox-Box, remove entrance keys, and immediately enter your facility to search for the cause of the alarm. Eliminating Forced Entry Eliminating forced entry means no property damage and no replacement costs for broken windows and forced door frames or locks. It also means no flying glass to injure Firefighters. Reduced Emergency Response Time You arrive on site knowing that you or your representative did not have to get there before Firefighters could enter your building. The Fire Department has already determined that a small fire was contained by the sprinkler system. The reduced emergency response time meant immediate shut off of the sprinkler water supply resulting in minimal smoke, fire and water damage to your property. Knox-Box The Vermillion Fire EMS Department encourages the use of the Knox-Box. Presently many businesses including city facilities are making use of this Emergency Entry System. Starting at $165 this one time purchase may save the business or home owner much more and allow the Firefighters instant access to the property. Reasons to Install a Knox-Box • Eliminate needless, costly forced entry damage that may not be covered by your insurance deductible. • Assure immediate building entry by Firefighters without delay or waiting for building keys. • Protect inventory, equipment and supplies from unnecessary water damage caused by delayed sprinkler shut-off • Satisfy local fire codes and emergency access ordinances. • Feel secure about emergency coverage when your building is left unattended.
