Beacon - Central County Fire & Rescue


The emergency beacon quickly changes your front porch light to a flashing signal that can be rapidly found by emergency responders. The simple light switch, or adapter, is easily installed, and free for all CCFR residents.

Under normal circumstances, the adapter allows your porch light to work like a standard light; however, in an emergency, simply turn your light switch off and on three times, and light instantly becomes a flashing signal, helping firefighters, police, and ambulance personnel quickly find your home, and alerting neighbors and passers-by to an emergency situation.

It’s ideal for any home, especially those with seniors, children, or the disabled. Most importantly, it means that once you’ve called for help, you don’t have to leave your home to go outside to signal your location.

CCFR has partnered with the City of St Peters, Mid-East Area Agency on Aging (MEAAA), and the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) to bring the residents of St. Peters the Emergency Beacon Program.

The emergency beacon bulb is not a substitute for dialing 9-1-1. Parents who have young children should take the time to instruct them how and when to activate the system.

To get your free emergency beacon adapter or switch visit CCFR at #1 Timberbrook Drive, St. Peters, MO 63376, call 636.970.9700 or e-mail us.
