Message from the Fire Marshal

Welcome to the Fire Prevention Divisions Webpage!

I would first like to thank you for taking the time to visit the Fire Prevention Divisions webpage. This division has quickly developed over the past few years and my hopes are that we will eventually blossom into a highly trained division that utilizes the latest technology to accomplish our mission. Though this division is new and young we are continuously adding new programs to our list of services we provide. Programs that are proven to be effective such as Risk Watch, The Alice Safety Brigade (Fire Clowns), and our Smoke Alarm Program are currently being utilized to address the injury prevention needs of our community.

It is important that I point out that even though I am currently a one person division not all the services are carried out by me. I depend on help from our departments Firefighters to make most of the prevention activities happen. I would be selfish if I did not give credit where credit is due. To all the personnel who help my division out either by dressing out as one of our clowns or helping set up for one of our events thank you!

In closing I would like to make it known that I truly enjoy serving the people of my community. I respect the community I serve as well as the brothers and sisters I serve with. Please feel free to contact me when in need of something or if you would like to make a recommendation.

With Safety in Mind,

Patrick J. Thomas – Fire Marshal
