RECRUIT CLASS 130 GRADUATE

May 26, 2011 - The Combat Division of Reservoir Fire Department would like to congratulate Quincy Burton, our newest graduate from the Mississippi State Fire Academy's basic firefighter course.  This course certifies each recruit at the Firefighter I & II level in accordance with NFPA 1001: Standard for Firefighter Professional Qualifications.  During the intense six weeks of training, each recruit received instruction in areas such as  fire behavior, fire suppression, rescue, forcible entry, ventilation, hazardous material response, and firefighter safety.

During the six week course, Firefighter Burton was elected by his peers as Class Captain of Recruit Class 130.  As Class Captain, Burton was responsible for command, leadership and organization of Class 130, as well as serving as the liaison between the recruits and the instructors.

ANNUAL HYDRANT TESTING TO BEGIN

April 18, 2011 - The Reservoir Fire Department will begin its annual hydrant testing today.  This testing process is required by the Mississippi State Rating Bureau in order for the Reservoir Fire Department to maintain its current fire rating.  Also, this process will ensure that the hydrant and water system is functioning properly and it is providing an adequate water supply in case of a fire.

 The areas along Spillway Road, Old Fannin Road, Hugh Ward Boulevard and Grants Ferry Road will be conducted first, followed by the Castlewoods area, and concluding in the Northshore area to include Northshore Parkway, Bay Pointe, Palisades and Marblehead.

 Testing will take place Monday through Friday between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.  Each hydrant will be opened and flowed for approximately five seconds.  With just over 900 hydrants to test, the testing process will take at least three to four weeks to complete. 

 During this process, the water from faucets or washing machines may become slightly discolored.  This discoloration poses no health hazards and can be alleviated by running the faucets for a few seconds or running an empty cycle through your washing machine.  Once the faucet has been turned on for a few seconds, water clarity should return.

CHANGE YOUR CLOCKS AND BATTERIES

March 12, 2011 - Remember tonight starts Daylight Saving Time, so be sure to set your clocks ahead one hour at 2 a.m.  Also, this is a great time to change the batteries in your smoke detectors and CO detectors.  Can you remember how long the current batteries have been in the detector? Go ahead and change them today, this small task just might save your life!
