In the wake of the current COVID-19 Pandemic, the Snyder Fire Department altered its annual Fire Prevention Open House.  Understanding the importance of Fire Prevention the Officers and Members of the Snyder Fire Department have decided to go virtual with this presentation. Utilizing the Fire Department social media platforms Facebook @SnyderFD and YouTube, Fire Department Members have produced informative and entertaining video presentations for you to view.



In 2019 the professional volunteer firefighters of Snyder Fire Department responded to 1,140 emergency incidents within our community.  Even during this time of a national pandemic our firefighters continue to provide EMS and fire protection for all our residents.  In order to do this our firefighters must remain healthy and free from illness.  Our firefighters have been equipped with specialized personal protective gear.  The apparatus and the equipment on the vehicles is disinfected on a regular basis.  However, the number one method in keeping firefighters healthy is through social distancing.  Therefore, access to the Fire Department building has been limited to only active firefighters.  Response to emergency incidents has also been modified to limit the number of firefighters risking possible exposure to the virus.

The Snyder Fire Department has always enjoyed and encouraged community involvement through our fire prevention program and attendance at various community social events.  However, in an attempt to maintain the health of our firefighters the Fire Department is not participating in parades and other social activities.  Our number one priority is to maintain the health of our firefighters so that they can continue to respond when needed to true emergency incidents.

Please rest assured that once these trying times are behind us the firefighters of the Snyder Fire Department look forward to again participating in many community social events.

Stay safe everyone.
