Police, fire Web sites provide surfers with information<BR>

Web surfers can now access information on the Kingman police and fire departments' recently constructed Internet sites with additional links planned in the future.

The department's links can be found at the city's Web site, which has been online since May, at www.cityofkingman.gov.

Currently, Kingman Police Department's Web site has general basic information on the department such as the divisions within KPD.

It also lists the testing process and salary information for police applicants.

Also on KPD's Web page are phone numbers to other law enforcement agencies, including the Arizona Department of Public Safety, Mohave County Sheriff's Office and Mohave Area General Narcotic Enforcement Team.

In the future, KPD plans to construct Web pages with much more information on the department, including information on where citizens can access patrol units online for traffic and criminal complaints.

Also planned is a calendar of community events related to the department, KPD Capt.

Larry McGill said.

Future Web pages would also include photos and information on criminals at large, sex offenders or missing juveniles, he said.

"It makes it more readily accessible to people at the police department," McGill said.

"People can find out more about the services, such as what is happening day to day as related to the department."

Kingman Fire Department's Web site is also under construction.

Currently, KFD's site has links to information, including tips on escaping a house fire, handling outdoor fires and installing smoke detectors.

"It's definitely an ongoing process," said Debbie McKee, an administrative assistant who is developing the Web site.

"The process is far from complete."

Future Web site information would include photos of recent fires and training procedures and information on public education activities and special events like the recent safety fairs.

Also planned are online survey forms for patients treated by paramedics, she said.

Hualapai Valley Fire Department also is constructing its own Web site.

Plans call for photos and information of HVFD firefighters, information on times that the department offers blood pressure checks, and schedule of the fire district's future board meetings.

Online burn permit forms are also under consideration.

HVFD Web address can be accessed at www.fire-ems.net.

Site maps can take a surfer to Arizona and then the local area.
