Firesafe Kit  
Hello I am Division Chief Chad Brutlag, from your Sheridan Fire-Rescue Department. In partnership with the Wyoming State Fire Marshal’s Office and Fire Departments around the state, we have formed the 307CRR initiative to focus on Community Risk Reduction in Wyoming.

Wyoming has suffered the loss of far too many of our citizens from fires in homes that utilize home oxygen. We have identified a simple device that will combat this problem thereby reducing the risk of injury and death to you, your family, and responding Firefighters while simultaneously slowing fire spread and limiting damage to your property.

The Firesafe valve is an easily installed device that will shut off the flow of oxygen when it is exposed to fire. If you or any member of your household is in need of one of these life-saving devices please contact the Sheridan Fire-Rescue Department or The Wyoming State Fire Marshal’s Office at [email protected] beneath the 307CRR logo to request your free Firesafe valve kit today

Smoke Detector / Carbon Monoxide Detector

Sheridan Fire-Rescue would like to remind everyone that it is the time of the year when Daylight Savings Time Ends that we all need to check and replace batteries in our smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors.  When purchasing new detectors, please check the date on the back of the detector and make sure it is not expired.  Please check out our video  that  Public Education Chairman Firefighter Zach McLain has put together.
