CPR/AED/FIRST AID CLASSES
The Division of Fire is pleased to offer CPR, AED, and First Aid training to the civic groups and businesses in our community. If you would like to arrange a program please call 937-898-2261 to schedule your training.
The Vandalia Fire Division will assist in the process of ordering and installing a lock box on businesses and residences at your request. This feature makes entry to a business or home easier should the Fire Division be called for a medical or fire emergency. For more information on obtaining a lock box and installation procedures, call 937-898-2261 or Email us.
OPEN BURN PERMITS
A permit is required to ensure the citizen’s safety and that of their property within the city limits. If you do not have a commercial fire pit, you must apply for an open burn permit before holding any recreational fire on your property. A recreational fire is for cooking purposes only, not for burning trash or brush. See the brochure for proper guidelines.
Please visit fire administration for your burn permit during regular business hours, Monday through Friday.
SMOKE DETECTOR PROGRAM
The Vandalia Fire Division will check or install a smoke detector at your residence at your request. This feature has proven to be a life saver for many families. Call 937-898-2261 to schedule a check or installation of your smoke detector or Email us.

FIRE DRILLS AND EXIT DRILLS IN THE HOME
Learn what to do when the fire alarm goes off. Whether you are at work, school or home, it is important to be prepared in the event of a fire.
When the alarm sounds, GET OUT AND STAY OUT!
Fire doesn’t make an appointment to invade your property. That is why it is critical for everyone to practice a “fire drill” at home. At least twice a year (two different seasons) you should sound the smoke detector and practice your escape plan including escaping through your secondary exit. Make sure everyone in your household knows where your meeting spot is outside so that everyone knows that no one is left behind.

REMEMBER, NEVER RE-ENTER A BURNING BUILDING, THE RESULT COULD BE DEADLY.
