For several years, the Kentland Volunteer Fire Department has required members to get dressed (PPE) on all Automatic Fire Alarms. This not only keeps our members efficient with their protective equipment, but ensures that they are prepared and ready to work on every incident…. seconds count, because taking minutes to perform can kill.
