Fire Department Fire Prevention Office
 
>> BACK TO INFO CENTER <<

In the 1950's Lt. Dale Hogg became the first Fire Prevention Officer of the Lyndhurst Fire Department. He instituted many fire safety programs for schools, businesses, and the elderly residents of the City. His work almost a halfcentury ago provided the base for today's Fire Prevention Office.
 
Since Lt. Hogg retired in 1974, the Office has been run by Captain Paul Kolsom, Captain Dick Danhoffer, Captain Mike DeLuca, Captain Ken Avram, and Captain Mike Carroll.
 
Today, Captain Michael Carroll is the Fire Prevention Officer. In addition to inspecting businesses, churches, schools, and other places of assembly to ensure compliance with Fire Codes, Captain Carroll also inspects in-home day-cares and provides agency-required inspections for families who are adopting children.
 
Inspections are conducted on a regular basis and follow up inspections to monitor the compliance with any noted violations take place thirty days after the initial inspection.
 
Captain Carroll is also the coordinator of the Department's Public Education and Safety Programs. Anyone wishing to have a speaker from our department talk to their group should make arrangements through Captain Carroll.
 
Public Education and Associated Services
 
The Lyndhurst Fire Department extends its services to the community even in nonemergency situations. Community CPR classes are offered at the station about eight times each year. Call City Hall at (440) 442-5777 to find out the date of the next scheduled class.
 
Talks on first aid, fire safety, and related topics are given to various groups in the City by making arrangements with the Fire Prevention office.
 
A number of members of the department are certified Child Safety Seat Inspectors. Anyone needing to have a child safety seat checked for correct installation can call the Fire Department to make arrangements to come to the station and have the seat checked by one of our inspectors.
