At approximately 9:37 this morning South Pekin Fire Department received a call to the grade school for a possible fire. We would like to thank Schaeferville Fire Department, Cincinnati Fire Protection District, Green Valley Fire Dept. and Pekin Firefighters Local 524 for your assistance and hard work today.

We would also like to thank Tazewell County Sheriff’s Office for their assistance with directing traffic, incoming units, and helping keep everything under control in the front of the school while we were working in the back.

South Pekin Grade School- District 137 staff acted efficiently and appropriately to keep everyone safe, including students and staff, and we are thankful for their technical assistance with the event.

We apologize for any water discoloration as we used multiple hydrants near the school for a water supply.

When this happens, it’s usually because the owner only shared it with a small group of people, changed who can see it or it’s been deleted.

The 2021 fireworks are tomorrow, we ask everyone to please be mindful of your surroundings and those around you. Please be safe. We will have firefighters present at the event and ask for your cooperation in everything.

That being said, it’s no secret that volunteerism is slowly fading. This isn’t just a local problem, it’s nationwide. If you have ever considered volunteering in the fire service or emergency medical services, feel free to approach any of our firefighters to ask about it. If you are interested in volunteering with us and helping your community, we can absolutely assist you with that. We will have applications available.

Our application is also available on our website at http://www.southpekinfire.org/volunteer/

These are the villages burn ordinances. When we come to you as a firefighter and ask you to extinguish a fire, it is because we have recieved complaints and have to abide by the law in that situation. We are people too, some of us have lived in the town our whole lives. Please, don’t be rude to us in these situations. Our hands are tied and we have to do our job, even if we’re not getting paid.

All we ask is for cooperation. We don’t write tickets, we try to be friendly and neighborly. All we ask is the same in return.
