EFFINGHAM, IL-(Effingham Radio)- The Effingham City Council met on Tuesday at 6:00pm.
During the meeting, the Effingham Fire Chief Holomy announced that the Fire Department would start doing car-seat installations on a monthly basis.
The Fire Department installed car-seats several years ago; however, the certified individual on the Department’s certification lapsed and the individual did not re-certify.
Chief Holomy stated that over the past few days, firefighter Tasha Hoffman has been taking the certification course so that the Department can hold installations.
These monthly installations will be on a flexible shift.
Additionally, the City Council heard from the City’s Emergency Management Coordinator, Kim Tegeler, regarding a service agreement for an Emergency Notification System.
According to Tegeler, the service agreement will be between the City and Effingham County for a system that would send out emergency notifications to both Effingham City and Effingham County residents.
Tegeler informed the Council that the City’s share in the cost of the system is nearly $4,000.
The Council passed the resolution for the service agreement unanimously.
