Jasper firefighters report recent runsJuly 28, 2020
From Local Sources
JASPER — Units of the Jasper Volunteer Fire Department were called into action once Monday and twice Saturday but none of those runs involved active fires.
The department answered an alarm activation at 10:51 a.m. Monday at Jasper Engines & Transmissions, 815 Wernsing Road.
Fire Chief Kenny Hochgesang said the activation was traced to a faulty flow switch in the sprinkler system.
Three trucks and 28 firefighters were on the scene 15 minutes.
Saturday’s first callout, at 7:34 a.m., involved an alarm activation at the Tenth Street Elementary building at 328 W. 10th St.
Hochgesang said the incident was chalked up as a false alarm. The department successfully reset the system.
Four trucks and 23 firefighters were on the scene 25 minutes.
Then, at 1:26 p.m., the department was notified of an alarm activation at the Holiday Inn Express, 2000 Hospitality Drive.
There was no fire, according to Hochgesang. Instead, he added, steam from a shower set off a sensitive detector.
Two trucks and 19 firefighters were on the scene 10 minutes.
