Remember fire safety when using portable space heaters. Keep them away from furniture and drapes.
We strive to make our community proud by providing our volunteers with regular training, continuing education and keeping our equipment and fire apparatus well maintained.
The Platteville Fire Department has received a pet oxygen mask kit via a donation from Invisible Fence.

The Boston Fire Department has created another excellent video related to Firefighter Cancer.
We all have 7 minutes to check out their latest efforts as it applies to every Firefighter at every Fire Department-everywhere.

The link below is the City of Platteville siren sound for fire calls. This siren is a repeating wail sound. It is used whenever a fire call has been received and dispatched through the Police Department. It will only be used between 6AM and 10PM. It will sound for anywhere from 1 minute to 3 minutes. When the public hears this siren, we ask that they be more aware of their surroundings and if driving, pull over if they see someone behind their vehicle with red or white flashing lights. If not in a vehicle, please stay away from the streets.
