Today, the flags at all five of our fire stations are flying at half-staff. This is done when the whole nation is in mourning. We are mourning the lives of the children and the teachers who were killed in their classroom in Uvalde, Tx., yesterday. Even though we are more than 1,300 miles from Uvalde, the magnitude of this tragedy hits us hard.

“There are truly no words. Our hearts are aching for all involved. Our prayers are going out to the victims, their families, survivors and first responders,” said Seth Comer, Fire Chief.

Our flags will fly at half-staff through sunset on Saturday, May 28.

Summer Safety Campaign Kickoff!

It’s Hot Out! ☀️
Look Before You Lock! 👀 🔒
Check for Kids & Pets! 👶 🐶 🐱

Today, we popped by our area daycares/preschools to promote our Summer Safety Campaign. Just under 500 families (children 3 and under) will be going home with a double-sided vehicle sunvisor, with our safety message printed on it. In addition to the sunvisors, we also handed out an educational pamphlets with information on heatstroke prevention for both children and pets, in English and Spanish.

According to the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA):

❗️In 2021, pediatric vehicular heatstroke claimed the lives of 23 children in the US. More than half were under the age of two.
❗️In 52.6% of cases, the child is forgotten by a parent or caregiver.
❗️In 25.9% of cases, children got into the vehicles on their own.
❗️Cars may overheat even when the windows have been left open an inch or two. - ASPCA
❗️Pets most at risk for overheating are young, elderly and overweight animals and those with thick or dark colored coats. However, all pets can be affected. -ASPCA

If you see a child and/or animal left in a car on a hot day, call 9-1-1. Florida law grants immunity to Good Samaritans who break through a car window to rescue a vulnerable person or animal, under certain conditions, in imminent danger.

If you are a parent of a child that received one of our sunvisors today, show us that you’re being summer safe by emailing Megan at contreras@ionafire.com a picture of your sunvisors in place so we can share on social media! You will see the sunvisors on all IMFD staff vehicles to help raise awareness and prevent tragedy.

*This program was geared towards the daycares/preschools. IMFD does not have any extras sunvisors to hand out.*

Such an important reminder!

I need one of those! 😁

Love this! ❤️

Today, we took part in a press conference alongside Florida Fish and Wildlife, United States Coast Guard, and the Lee County Sheriff’s Office, in honor of National Boating Safety Week.

Division Chief of Training and Special Operations John Wisdom & Battalion Chief Marc Mascarelli shared some boating safety tips with the news media and the public. We had Marine 70 on the water as well. We took media reporters on the boat afterwards so they could get video for their stories.

Repost from LCSO:
It is no secret that we live in paradise here in Lee County. It is important to us that everyone is having not only a fun, but safe, summer! We always work closely with our partners to ensure our waterways are safe for all residents and visitors.

Before hitting the waterways - be sure to have a plan in place for every possible scenario. Always have a designated boat operator, a life jacket for every person on board, and stay up to date on your boater education. If an emergency does occur, remember, we are only one call away!
