Jasper firefighters make multiple runsJanuary 28, 2020
From Local Sources
JASPER — Members of the Jasper Volunteer Fire Department made a pair of Saturday runs and started this week with another callout.
The first weekend call, at 3:24 p.m., involved a carbon monoxide alarm at the Harold and Barbara Schipp residence at 907 Chad Ave.
Fire Chief Kenny Hochgesang said there was carbon monoxide present, which prompted firefighters to turn off appliances, ventilate the home and ensure the homeowners would have repair technicians visit.
One truck and a four-member duty crew was on the scene 30 minutes.
Then, at 11:56 p.m. Saturday, an alarm activated at Tri-Cap’s offices at 607 Third Ave.
Hochgesang said firefighters determined there was a faulty detector.
Two trucks and 26 firefighters were on the scene 20 minutes.
Finally, at 1:57 p.m. Monday, the department was sent to the St. Vincent de Paul Store, 1320 Third Ave., when a sprinkler flow alarm activated.
Hochgesang said a contractor had struck a water line, leading the city to open a hydrant during repairs. That fluctuation in water pressure triggered the St. Vincent alarm.
Three trucks and 23 firefighters were on the scene 15 minutes.
