The Casnovia Township Fire Department as well as other Departments are required to have knowledge of hazardous materials stored or used in commercial and farm facilities where they may respond in an emergency.
MIOSHA requires that the Fire Department prepare and train each firefighter of the departments responsibilities when responding to facilities within its jurisdiction that use,produce,or store hazardous materials.This requirement is to ensure the safety of firefighters and allow responders to serve our community in a more effective manner.
The first attached document is a copy of the rules that the fire department must follow. This is called Fire Marshal Bulletin number 9.
The second attached document is the survey form that facilities are required to complete advising the Department of the hazardous materials.
Casnovia Township Fire Department requests that Represenitives of the Company/Farm located in our jurisdiction complete the survey and keep it updated on the inventories. Once you have the survey completed please e-mail it firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once we have them we will review them and keep copies available for our responders so they can review them should they be responding to a call for service involving such hazards.
Thank You in advance for your cooperation and assistance.
