Smoke Detectors & Carbon Monoxide Detectors

A smoke and carbon monoxide detector can save your life! Toxic gases cause 75% of fire related deaths in house fires. There are 15,000 carbon monoxide related illnesses and 500 deaths annually. Call the station to find out more information about these detectors and how they can help reduce your risk of exposure at home. Change your smoke detector batteries at least annually and test them every month!

Fire Extinguishers

Glen Lake Fire Department can assist you in determining the proper fire extinguisher(s) for your home. We can also instruct you in the proper placement and use of your extinguisher in case of fire. For more information about fire extinguishers please call or email us.

CPR Classes

Glen Lake Fire Department can provide a variety of American Heart Association CPR courses for individuals or groups. For more information please call or email us. You can also stop by at either of our stations Monday- Friday from 8a-5p.

Walk-In Assistance

We want to stress that using 911 is the best way to access medical and fire services. However, we know there are times when minor non-urgent situations arise. Glen Lake Fire Department offers complimentary blood pressure and blood glucose checks. We also provide in-station injury assessments and treatments for a variety of minor medical issues such as cuts, abrasions, burns, insect bites, etc. Unfortunately, we cannot dispense medications such as aspirin/Tylenol, antihistamines and other typical over-the-counter medications.

If you have questions concerning Fire Prevention, Safety, or Public Education, please feel free to get in touch with us!
