It’s important to have enough smoke alarms in your home. Fire research has demonstrated that with today’s modern furnishings, fires can spread much more rapidly than in the past when more natural materials were used. Because of this, having a sufficient number of properly located smoke alarms is essential to maximize the amount of available escape time. (NFPA website). It is recommended to have a smoke alarm in each bedroom, one outside the sleeping area, one in the basement and one on each additional floor. To help with this the Claycomo Fire Department has collaborated with the American Red Cross to provide and install smoke alarms free to Claycomo residents. For a limited time, you can call the fire station, and we will install up to three (3) smoke detectors in your house. If we run out of smoke alarms, we will install any owner provided smoke or Carbon Monoxide alarms as well. We ask that you contact the fire station during normal business hours to set up a time that our crew can install them.

Resident vs Non-Resident:
The Village of Claycomo and Kansas City share the same zip code, we there is often confusion of what is Claycomo, and what is Kansas City. We have lots of people contact the station thinking they are in the Village of Claycomo, more often than not, they are in Kansas City. Here is a simple rule to go by to determine if you are in Claycomo limits. With the exception of Northgate, Ford plant or off Hughes Rd, Claycomo residents will have a 1-3 digit address. Kansas City residents have a four digit. Eugene Field road is a prime example, the people on the west side are Kansas City residents, and the east side are Claycomo residents.
We welcome anyone that would like to tour the fire station. We just ask that you call ahead during normal business hours.
We will come and install or change batteries for smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors. Call during normal business hours to schedule a visit.
The Fire Department is located at 333 East 69 Highway and is available 24 hours a day. We provide fire protection and ambulance service to the residents and businesses in the Village of Claycomo as well as participating in several mutual aid pacts with our neighboring cities.
Pancake Day is an annual event held by the Claycomo Firefighters Association. The proceeds are used for un-funded items for the firefighters and the fire station. Proceeds are also used to support families in need throughout the year. Most importantly however it is a social event where our residents and our firefighters can get to know one another and strengthen our extended family in the Village.
Pancake Day began in 1963 as a fundraiser for fire department operations. It has evolved into a "Thank You" to our residents and businesses for the support that they show for their fire department.
