Message from our Fire Chief

Recently the OIB Fire D
epartment responded to a kitchen fire and while cleaning up noticed that the smoke detectors in the residence were  found not functioning.

Additionally, June 6th, "Smoke Alarm Saturday," was to be coordinated with the State Fire Marshal and fire departments throughout the State as a smoke detector canvas day however, with current restrictions of the COVID-19 we were not able to conduct the canvas. 


The fire department  requests that residents of the town please check their smoke detectors, make sure they are working properly, and change the batteries if you haven't done so already. If you find that your detectors are not working properly, please utilize the contact information below to contact the fire department for assistance in replacing your smoke detectors. 


Remember that smoke detectors really do save lives!
