Adopt A Hydrant Program Pursued by the GI Fire Company- February 2021


Story by Ray Pauley, Public Information Officer.
    Grand Island Fire Chief Mark Sadkowski urges residents and business owners to "adopt" a nearby fire hydrant to keep them clear of heavy snow accumulations. He stressed that during fire emergencies, firefighters should not have to locate and dig out hidden hydrants, to gain a ready water supply for on scene apparatus. Any time taken away from actual firefighting operations could prove to be costly in terms of property damage or rescue efforts. Such delays can be avoided with help from the community. Your GIFC volunteers will appreciate such valuable assistance.


Carbon Monoxide Poisoning an Everpresent Danger - February 2021

Story by Ray Pauley, Public Information Officer.
    Grand Island Fire Chief Mark Sadkowski reports a steady increase in CO incidents over the past two months. Firefightwrs responded to four such calls during Decembewr 2020, which then doubled to eight during January 2021.
    Chief Sadkowski stated that most of these calls involved faulty detectors, however, in one instance a reading of 10 PPM was caused by a water heater venting problem and the homeowner was advised to take corrective action.
    Fire officials note that CO poisoning closely mimics the flu with headaches, nausea, etc. CO itself is difficult to detect because it is colorless, odorless, tasteless and is the result of incomplets combustion. Any sustained levels of 150-200 PPM can be fatal to anyone exposed. It is therefor crucial that gas fired appliances and other sources such as furnaces, stoves, wood burning stoves and fireplaces, hot wat heatwes, boilers, etc., be checked by qualified technicians on a regular basis.. Such a precaution, along with fully operational CO detectors, will help to prevent life threatening consequences by this "silent killer."
