The Hannibal Fire Department Completes Local Hazardous Material Training

Hazmat Training

The Hannibal Fire Department and Hannibal Board of Public Works teamed up to conduct a hazardous material (HAZMAT) class on site at the Waste Water Treatment Plant. Each shift of the HFD completed the class over a three day period. The training focused primarily on the chemical Chlorine which is routinely used at the treatment facility. The class provided the opportunity for the HFD members to become familiar with the building, equipment, and procedures used by the BPW to handle the chemical during its use at the plant. The training also contained use of the Incident Management System, HAZMAT/WMD Response Unit, Class A chemical suits, and emergency repair tools for the Chlorine tanks on site. This type of focused training keeps the HFD more proficient with mitigating potential HAZMAT emergencies specific to our community. (June 2011)

Thank You for Helping the Hannibal Fire Fighters Raise Money for the MDA

Fill the Boot Drive

The Hannibal Fire Department and the IAFF Local 1211 teamed up to raise money for the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) in Downtown Hannibal. Union members past and present from the Hannibal Fire Department volunteered during the annual Fill the Boot Drive at the intersection of Third Street and Center Street one weekend in August. The group of volunteers consisted of on-duty, off-duty, and retired members of the HFD. The generosity of the Hannibal community was outstanding as it allowed the fire fighters to raise a total of thirteen hundred dollars for the cause. All of the funds collected go to the MDA which conducts worldwide research efforts to eliminate over forty neuromuscular diseases. The MDA also provides summer camps for children, professional and public health education, and other related programs. (August 2011)

September 11th Patriot Remembrance Day

Patriot Day Ceremony
We shall never forget all those who lost their lives on September 11, 2001. The events that occurred that day changed our nation and our lives forever. Our fallen brothers and sisters did not die in vain. As a result of their sacrifice, the United States of America stands stronger. We have proven to the world our national resiliency and dedication to defending freedom. The Hannibal community came together on Patriot Day this year to remember and honor our fellow Americans who have lost their lives as a result of the cowardly acts of terrorism. Past and present members of the United States Military and homeland emergency services were also given appreciation during the ceremony. The service was hosted by American Legion Post 55 at the Marion County 911 Dispatch Center in Hannibal where a cherished piece of the World Trade Center is now memorialized. (September 2011)

Santa Clause Visits Fire Station Three

 
Santa Clause
The Hannibal Fire Department and IAFF Local 1211 send Santa Clause an invitation to visit the Hannibal Community at the fire house each year. On December tenth, Santa took time out of his busy pre-Christmas schedule to stop by Fire Station Three to talk with the local kids. Santa gave them the opportunity to tell him what they would like for Christmas and to pose for a personal picture together. Mrs. Clause sat close by and offered candy to each of the boys and girls. Firefighters served cookies, popcorn, soda, and hot chocolate after each child's visit. As soon as all of the children had spent time with Santa, he made his list, checked it twice, and was gone as quickly as he had arrived. HFD Firefighters would like to give special thanks to Santa, Mrs. Clause, and Ms. Elf; as well as to the generous local sponsors, whose support helped make the event a success. (December 2011)

Thank You for Helping the Hannibal Fire Fighters Raise Money for the Red Cross

Firefighter Collecting A Donation
The Hannibal Fire Department and the IAFF Local 1211 teamed up to raise money for the American Red Cross Northeast Missouri Chapter at River Bend Shopping Center in Hannibal. Union members from the Hannibal Fire Department volunteered during the annual Bucket Blitz Drive in front of the Wal-Mart Supercenter one weekend in March. The group of volunteers consisted of off-duty members of the HFD who gave out Tootsie Rolls and collected donations in red buckets. The generosity of the Hannibal community was outstanding as it allowed the fire fighters to raise over two hundred and twenty five dollars for the cause. All of the funds collected primarily go to support disaster relief services within the seven counties served by the Northeast Missouri Chapter of the American Red Cross. Your contributions will bring help and comfort to someone in need. (March 2012)

Hannibal Fire Fighters and Police Officers Participate in a Charity Softball Game

Police Car, Ladder Truck, and Flag
The Hannibal Fire Department and the Hannibal Police Department teamed up to raise money for charity and had fun in the process. Both departments worked together to organize the Guns and Hoses Benefit Softball Game. The event took place at Clemens Field on Monday, June 11th. A large crowd assembled to show support and enjoy an entertaining game of softball. The evening was full of suspense as both teams were evenly matched. Despite the Guns (HPD) holding a steady lead into the ninth, the Hoses (HFD) pulled through to win with a final score of 19-18. The proceeds from the game will be split between the two departments and used for several local causes. The FOP MO Lodge 20 will use its share for the Shopping with Cops and Kids Program and the IAFF Local 1211 will establish a scholarship fund for an HHS graduate seeking a fire science degree.

HFD Pursues Mission Through Training

 
Burn Trailer Class
The Hannibal Fire Department is dedicated to providing the best emergency service possible. One element it uses to accomplish this mission is constant training. The beginning of this year has proven to be a good example of this. In order to remain proficient and improve performance, HFD fire fighters must continually be trained and educated on each of the diverse services they provide for the community. In January, members of each shift completed training that included the HAZMAT ID 360 equipment and Material Safety Data Sheets, as well as a three day class on emergency medicine. February contained apparatus driver training and classes on structural fire fighting techniques, fire ground tactics and strategies, fire service hydraulics, airway management, foam operations, street familiarization, and the Sunshine Law. This month, classes on HAZMAT, fire apparatus operations, and business inspections have been completed with more scheduled. (March 2013)

The 2nd Annual Guns and Hoses Charity Event is a Success!

Guns and Hoses Game
This year the 2nd Annual Guns and Hoses Charity Softball Game was a dual event. On June 26th the Hannibal Fire Department successfully defended the trophy against the Hannibal Police Department during a challenging game at Clemens Field. After winning against the Quincy Fire Department, the Adams County Sheriff's Department competed against the HFD in the Battle for the Paddle on August 10th. The HFD came out ahead after a well played game by both sides. Despite who holds the trophy or paddle, everyone wins from the event. The players have fun and the audience enjoys an entertaining softball game. Also, each of the departments involved give back to its community by donating game proceeds to local charities. These include the Shopping with Cops and Kids Program and the Fire Service Scholarship Fund for an HHS student. Special thanks to all the fans and local sponsors whose support helped in making this event a great success. (August 2013)
