Venice Fire and Coconut Creek Go RFID
This Venice Fire Department was constructed in 1958 at 447 E. Venice Ave. The building was demolished in 1990. Venice Fire Department’s first piece of apparatus was a 1926 American La France fire engine purchased from Moore Haven, Florida. The engine has a 750-gallon per minute pump and a 40-gallon tank for use on small fires. The engine is still in existence today — affectionately known as “Old Betsy”. Taken in 1960 in front of the Venice Fire Department, Venice’s first fire Chief was J.C. Haladay from Cleveland Ohio. From 1926 through 1931, the fire station was in a building located north of St. Augustine Avenue and east of current North Nassau Street. The department moved into the East Venice Avenue station in 1937. The Fire Department occupied the western half of this facility built in 1958 to house the police department, jail, and fire department. The combined facility was located on the NW corner of East Venice Avenue and Warfield Avenue on the site of the old city “barn” or garage.
Silent Partner continues to grow its Fire & EMS customer base within Florida—recently adding Venice Fire and Coconut Creek to their list. Florida is home for us, so naturally we take great pride in being able to help our local Fire Departments improve their overall Logistics Process—by “dramatically improving their visibility through RFID. Once you are able to get the “data” at a fraction of the time, with far greater accuracy—your decision making becomes simpler, and crystal clear which then translates to 30- 50 percent reduction in Medical Supplies inventory cost, and incredibly improving their efficiency and accuracy as it relates to Assets.
We are thrilled to have both Venice and Coconut Creek on board and are looking forward to helping them improve their overall Logistics processes.
