Q. Who is the Fire Marshall?
A. Pratt County has no Fire Marshall. Each township has a Fire Department with its own individual chief. Pratt County operates rescue service for the entire county, providing vehicle extrication, haz-mat response on a limited basis, and other types of rescue service. Pratt County also has three pieces of fire apparatus including a 3,500 gallon tanker, 1,500 gallon tanker-brush unit, and 4 by 4 pick-up brush unit which may respond anywhere in Pratt County when requested. This is funded under the Emergency Prep. budget and is administered by Mark McManaman. Fire chiefs for each district are as follows:
|Township 12||Mark McManaman|
|Pratt Co. Fire Rescue||Mark McManaman|
|City of Pratt||David Kramer|
Q. What do I need to do to set
up a fireworks stand?
A. Contact Mark McManaman at Emergency Services at 620-672-4130. Stands are only allowed outside city limits of Pratt. Some smaller cities may have ordinances restricting fireworks or stands. State laws apply to all stands. A sales tax permit or temporary permit is required. The Kansas Department of Revenue issues these tax permits. State regulations are available through the State Fire Marshall at 785-296-3401. Stand permits are $50.00 in Pratt County. Each stand will be inspected and permit given. Fees are collected after a stand is set up and in operation.
Q. Who assigns new street addresses
outside of town?
A. Rural addresses are issued by the Emergency Services office by Mark McManaman at 620-672-4130. Addresses in small town are issued by the city clerks of those towns and by Mark McManaman. Both people should be contacted about addresses in small towns so that addresses are not duplicated and are put in the database maintained by Emergency Services and Southwestern Bell, Sprint, Haviland, and South Central Telephone.
