We are happy to announce the storm siren is fixed and back in working order.  Thank you to the Volunteer Fire Man and Clint Thomas for making the needed repairs.

Just a reminder: The Whistle is ONLY sounded when there is an immediate danger to the Community.  Our department is instructed by 911 Dispatch and will only sound the alarm when instructed by law enforcement agency's. Not by the National Weather Service or Weather Radio Forecasts. 

    You should always have a weather radio in your home.  If the power goes out the Siren can not be sounded, as it is run on electricity.

Fire– 3 or more whistles going up and back down again

Calling Fireman– 3 short whistles

We would also like to remind everyone our Fire  Department is Volunteer and we are always happy to have new  members that would like to serve their  Community.  Fire Meetings are on the First Wednesday of each Month at 7pm at the Cainsville Fire Station.
