On Oct. 10, during Fire Prevention Week, Oct. 6-12, the Society of Casualty Safety Engineers presented a check for $500 to  Thomas Janetske, chief of the City of Evanston’s Fire & Life Safety Services Division.

Brian A. Molenda, City of Evanston Safety Specialist, was also part of this presentation. Mr. Janetske said the contribution would provide adaptive smoke detectors to Evanston residents with disabilities, whether the disability be visual, hearing-impairment or mobility issues. Smoke detectors/alarms with a vibrating pad or flashing light are available for those with a decreased ability to react in an emergency.

The City of Evanston’s Fire & Life Safety Services works with agencies in Evanston such as the Health Department and the City of Evanston’s Ombudsman. Chief Janetske says he hopes that this gift from the Society of Casualty Safety Engineers will encourage others in Evanston to help meet the community’s fire safety needs. The Fire & Life Safety department are partnering with the private sector to research the latest technology available.

Those who are interested in supporting this initiative should contact: Evanston Fire & Life Safety Services at 847-448-8191.
