GeoLynx Mapping Monitor that gives the firemen detailed GIS base maps with real-time emergency call handling telephony, Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD), Automatic Vehicle Location (AVL), and other real-time and historic emergency event data. This mapping information is the same as what the 911 dispatcher sees.
Also on the screen is "I am Responding" program that lets the firefighters know immediately who is available to respond to our fire calls, where they are responding, and when they will be responding. Each Firemen also has the app on his cellular telephone.
Adopt A Hydrant
Winter storms can often hide fire hydrants under a mountain of snow making them impossible to find quickly. Please don’t let your neighborhood hydrant remain “undercover.” Also keep hydrants free from overgrowth of grass, weeds and bushes the rest of the year. We need a three-foot clearance on all sides. To fill out your adoption papers go to the following link and complete the application form. Livermore Fire Department. A certificate with your hydrant number will be mailed to your address.

Midland Power Company of Jefferson, Iowa presented a training session on power line safety at the Humboldt County Fire Fighters County Meeting on Thursday July 16, 2015 at the New Livermore Fire Station located 703 3rd Street.
The demonstration provided some jolting reminders on how “Electricity” can hurt you and kill, they talked about what you can do to be safe and careful. Midland Power Company of Jefferson, Iowa designed the training course to teach firefighters how to handle downed power lines as well as the invisible hazards of electricity. The demonstration showed how thing work and some of the hidden hazards there are if you encounter a power line down on the ground, often people will think it's got to be de-energized or dead but it is not always the case.
From car accidents to severe weather, knowledge of downed power lines is pivotal for firefighters and first responders. Electricity is very unpredictable, so it's training that all responders definitely need. It will keep firefighters safe and prevents them from getting injured or killed. They also talk about what to do with solar power systems tied to the Electrical utility grid power system!
