Fire Safety Inspections
The Comstock Township Department of Fire & Rescue performs approximately 500 fire safety inspections per year. The main goal of a fire safety inspection is to promote and encourage a safe community. A secondary goal is to improve relationships between the fire department and the business community through professional, kind, and courteous interactions outside a typical emergency situation.
Comstock businesses have been very welcoming of our staff and have shown great willingness to correct any deficiencies that may pop up during the inspection. Owners and managers understand the importance of making their businesses safe for their employees and customers.
Car Seat Checks & Installations
Have you had your child’s car seat or booster seat checked? Did you know that Comstock Fire now has 6 full-time firefighters that are nationally certified Child Passenger Safety Technicians (CPST)? Our certified firefighters are able to assist with the proper use of child restraint systems and seat belts. A majority of parents and caregivers still misuse their child restraints and need help to get it right. The best way to protect children in the car is to put them in the right seat at the right time. Vehicle crashes are a leading cause of death for children in the United States. Child restraints, or car seats, reduce the risk of injury by 71 to 82 percent.
We do car seat checks and installs (by appointment only) from 9:00 a.m. until noon on the 2nd Friday and 4th Saturday of each month at Comstock Station 9-2 (5947 E. H Ave). To make an appointment please call Lt. Michael Kessler at 269-345-9244.
Reflective Address Signs
Comstock Fire has reflective green address signs available for Township residents. The signs are highly reflective and very useful during all emergencies. It is recommended they be installed on your mailbox or an existing pole that is visible from the roadway. If you would like to have a reflective sign installed at your home please contact Lt. Michael Kessler (Comstock Fire) at 269-345-9244.
