School Safety

You’d never guess it, but used firehose is linking South Central Local Schools and EHOVE Career Center in a partnership for school safety. 

South Central Superintendent Ben Chaffee, Jr. saw social media posts about how firehose pieces can be used to safely secure classroom doors from intruders. “I contacted Supervisor Charlie Warthling to see if EHOVE would be interested in assisting us with this endeavor.  He, along with South Central SRO Deputy Mitchel Cawrse of the Huron County Sheriff Office, support this safety measure.”

Firehose can help secure a classroom door by being slipped over the metal bars of the door opener, a normal feature of a commercial door. Since firehose is made to withstand high water pressure, heat, and extensive wear-and-tear, it’s a great candidate for withstanding the stress of not allowing a door opener to do its job.

All of the firehose being used is industry-standard and originally utilized by area departments who later donate it to EHOVE’s Firefighter/EMT program.  The students train with the firehose in everything from drills to live burns. 

If a hose fails testing or is deemed no longer viable upon inspection, it is normally tagged as out of service and thrown away. 

“We’re making the most of our resources with this initiative because the firehose can be recycled for this new purpose instead of being thrown away,” said Warthling. “It still has a very important role in safety, just in a new way.”

“School safety is always on my mind, and by incorporating these fire hoses as door closures, I believe it is just one more step, one more option, we are providing to our staff to help protect our students and keep them safe,” said Chaffee.
