Provide residents a free, secure and simple way to provide critical information about their households to our first responders.

Child Safety Seat Inspection
The Automotive Safety Program, Indiana University School of Medicine, with funding from the Indiana Criminal Justice Institute, has established a network of Child Safety Seat Inspection Stations where parents and caregivers can make an appointment to have their child safety seat inspected by a certified child passenger safety technician.
CPR Classes are offered in the Command Training Center (Clay Station 22). We offer the BLS for Healthcare Providers, Heartsaver® CPR AED and a Heartsaver® First Aid CPR AED classes.
The Knox-Box® Residential Program enhances the Fire Department’s response times. A residential Knox-Box not only allows responders to enter a home unassisted, it also prevents forced entry damage and added stress to the patient.

The Clay Fire Territory has gathered the following information to assist you and your family during difficult period after a disaster.
Smoke Detector Request
If there is a fire in your home, smoke spreads fast and you need smoke alarms to give you time to get out. Having a working smoke alarm cuts the chances of dying in a reported fire in half.
Kids Fire Summer Camp
The Clay Fire Summer Camp is designed to allow children to experience and understand what a Firefighter / EMT does on a regular basis. The program is targeted for children ages 10 – 13 years of age and the activities will be directed accordingly. Campers will actually participate “hands on” with equipment and have the opportunity to learn while performing mock fire and rescue situations. It is our mission to inspire the campers and teach them valuable lifesaving skills while having fun.
