Working smoke alarms save lives! No residence should be without working smoke alarms on every level of the home and outside each sleeping area. Steese VFD will provide and install smoke alarms, in an owner occupied home, if the homeowner is a senior citizen, disabled, or living on a fixed income. Personnel are also available to inspect and install resident purchased smoke alarms in any residence within fire district boundaries. For more information about smoke alarms go to http://www.usfa.fema.gov/campaigns/smokealarms/.
Residential Fire Sprinklers
The most effective fire loss prevention and reduction measure for both life and property is the installation and maintenance of home fire sprinklers. Fire sprinkler systems offer the optimum level of fire safety because they control the fire immediately in the room of origin and help limit the spread of fire.

Steese VFD is pleased to offer Fire Station tours for interested children’s and adult groups. During these tours the Firefighters remain on duty and may have to respond to emergency calls. Due to our many responsibilities, all tours must be requested 14 days before the desired tour date. This allows our Captains & Chiefs to determine if the tour will fit into the daily training schedule. No backpacks or packages are allowed on Station tours.
One adult chaperone is required for every 7 children. Examples: 1-7 children one adult is required. 8-14 children two adults are required. 15-23 children three adults are required. 24-30 children four adults are required. No more than 30 children are allowed on any Station Tour.
Steese VFD is pleased to offer fire engine visits for schools within the District boundaries. During these visits, the Firefighters remain on duty and may have to respond to emergency calls. Due to our many responsibilities, all visits must be requested 14 days before the desired visit date. This allows our Captains & Chiefs to determine whether the visit will fit into the daily training schedule.
