NOTICE: Scott City Fire Department is currently completing required Fire Hydrant inspections/testing on all city Fire Hydrants.
While in your area this can make the water temporarily appear rust-colored because the iron and other mineral deposits in the water mains get stirred up. There is no health hazard associated with discolored water. Water is safe to use and consume during hydrant flushing, however it may stain laundry.

Smoke Detector / CO Detectors
Smoke Detectors / CO Detectors
Working smoke and carbon monoxide (CO) alarms save lives, and it's important that you have them installed in your home. The Scott City Fire Department can help you install your smoke or carbon monoxide alarms. At this time the SCFD is unable to provide alarms and we do not endorse one alarm from another. The death rate per 100 reported fires was twice as high in homes without a working smoke alarm as it was in home fires with this protection.
The National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA) reports that three of every five home fire deaths resulted from fires in homes with no smoke alarms or no working smoke alarms. Furthermore, 23% of home fire deaths resulted from fires in homes in which smoke alarms were present but did not operate.
Install smoke alarms inside each bedroom, outside each sleeping area and on every level of the home, including the basement. CO alarms should be installed on each level of the home -- ideally on any level with fuel burning appliances and outside of sleeping areas. Additional CO alarms are recommended 5-20 feet from sources of CO such as a furnace, water heater or fireplace. You should also replace your smoke alarms at least every 10 years and your CO alarms as instructed by the manufacturer (usually within 5-7 years).Please contact us to schedule a time for us to assist you with installing your smoke or carbon monoxide alarms. You can reach us at 573.264.2126.
The Scott City Fire Department encourages residents to replace their smoke and CO alarm batteries at least once a year, preferably twice a year when you change your clocks for daylight saving time. 10-year sealed battery smoke alarms are designed to provide up to 10 years of protection without a battery change. However, if your 10-year alarm begins to chirp, it is warning you that the battery is low, and you should replace the entire smoke alarm right away. Hard-wired smoke alarms are powered through your electrical system. However, good hard-wired smoke alarms have batteries to back up their operation in case there is a power outage. Make sure to replace these batteries at least once a year. Anyone who is physically unable to change their batteries can contact the Scott City Fire Department and we will assist you with changing your smoke and CO alarm batteries. We do require the business or homeowner to provide the appropriate ladder and batteries for our crews to use.
Anyone who is physically unable to change their batteries can contact the Scott City Fire Department and we will assist you with changing your smoke and CO alarm batteries. We do require the business or homeowner to provide the appropriate ladder and batteries for our crews to use. For alarm systems that are hardwired, please contact a qualified electrician.
CPR / First Aid
CPR / First Aid
The Scott City Fire Department encourages all of our area residents to learn how to provide cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and use an automatic external defibrillator (AED). If ever a co-worker, friend or loved one is choking or has stopped breathing every minute that goes by reduces the chance of survival by seven to ten percent. Lives can been saved when bystanders act and start care for victims of choking or sudden cardiac arrest. Learn what to do so you can act when this happens.
- The American Heart Association (AHA) has adopted an on-format to better accommodate the needs and schedules of citizens looking to get their CPR certification. Those needing CPR certification are encouraged to enroll in the American Heart Association’s online eLearning modules for Heartsaver CPR/AED and HeartCode® Basic Life Support (BLS). Once you have completed the online portion of the certification class, you can contact the Scott City Fire Department to schedule your hands-on session with one of our instructors to complete the practical part of the course. Once completed, you will have earned your CPR certification.
Fire Extinguisher Training
Smoke Detectors / CO Detectors
A fire extinguisher is an absolute necessity in any home or office. While there’s a good chance that the extinguisher will never be used to fight a fire; it could end up saving your property and even your life, but knowing how to use a Fire Extinguisher is just as important as owning one.
Fire is very dangerous and unpredictable; however, increased awareness with proper training will help provide the knowledge required to make the safest decision for evacuation or suppression during a fire incident.
Fire extinguishers are a vital safety tool. Skill development with proper use may save your business or home from the disastrous effects of a fire. To schedule a fire extinguisher training seminar, please fill out the email form on this page and reference fire extinguisher training.
Pre-Fire Incident Planning is not an inspection but rather an opportunity for the Scott City Fire Department and our personnel to learn more about your company or organization. Again these are are not Inspections and are strictly used by fire suppression crews in case of a fire emergency.
Some of the information gathered during pre-planning visits include, but are not limited to: your company or organization contact information, building construction type, occupancy type, location of all entrances and exits, presence of alarm systems and sprinkler systems, breaker box locations, and utility shut-offs.
If you business has no objection we will take pictures and also sketch a floor-plan of the business
While conducting pre-plans of local business's, the fire department personnel will also fill out a hazard assessment survey which will assist fire suppression crews in the future by giving them the knowledge to fight the fire more efficiently. Again, this is not an inspection, but a survey of the business or organization used in training of our personnel and during fire suppression operations.
Not only can pre-plans be extremely helpful to fire personnel in an emergency situation, but also gives you the opportunity to meet our personnel and get to now us as well. Prep-plans also help with lowering the areas ISO ratings.
