Safety Information and Emergency Preparedness

Can we find you in an emergency?

Help us find you with a reflective address sign!

Would emergency responders be able to find you if you needed help? In an emergency, every second counts, and there is no better way to help us out than to have your address clearly marked. Don't wait for an emergency to find out that your address is not visible from the street.

Snohomish County Fire District 7 can make you a personalized address sign to ensure that your address is visible from the street.

Horizontal or vertical signs are available (posts do not come with signs).

Free blood pressure checks are available at every station in Fire District 7. Keep in mind firefighters may not always be at the station due to emergency calls or training events.

If you are experiencing chest pains or any other symptoms, please call 911 instead of coming to the fire station. Firefighters may not be at the station to help you. For more information on blood pressure and prevention tips you can visit the American Heart Association's webpage.

Did you know that wearing an approved bicycle helmet that fits properly can help reduce the risk of a serious head injury by 88%?

A helmet should be worn every time you ride a bike, scooter, skateboard, skate, snowboard, or ski - and it needs to fit properly. Also, any helmet that has been involved in a crash needs to be replaced immediately - even if there aren't any visible signs of damage.

Bicycle and multi-sport helmets are available in a variety of sizes for $10 at all Fire District 7 stations.

Ski and Snowboard helmets are available in a variety of sizes for $25 at Fire Station 31.

Remember to obey all the rules of the road and please be careful. Have a safe and enjoyable time while riding!

Did you know that an estimated 8 out of 10 car seats are installed incorrectly? You'll have peace of mind when you know your child's car seat is properly installed in your car.

In March 2011, the American Academy of Pediatrics issued their new policy statement on Child Passenger Safety that includes five steps to optimize safety in the car for children from birth through adolescence:

  1. Infant-only or convertible car safety seat used rear-facing
    All infants and toddlers should ride in a rear-facing car safety seat until they are two years of age or until they reach the highest weight or height allowed by the manufacturer of their car safety seat.
  2. Convertible or combination car safety seat used forward-facing
    All children two years or older, or those younger than two, who have outgrown the rear-facing weight or height limit for their car safety seat, should use a forward-facing car safety seat with a harness for as long as possible.
  3. Belt-positioning booster seat
    All children whose weight or height is above the forward-facing limit for their car safety seat should use a belt-positioning booster seat until the vehicle lap-and-shoulder belt fits properly, typically when they have reached 4 feet 9 inches in height and are between 8 and 12 years of age.
  4. Lap-and-shoulder vehicle seat belt
    When children are old enough and large enough to use the vehicle seat belt alone, they should always use lap-and-shoulder belts for optimal protection.
  5. All children younger than 13 years should be restrained in the rear seats of vehicles for optimal protection.
