It is important to remember that prevention
is the most effective way to save lives and property from fire.
Whereas our role is most often measured in response time and
containment, you the citizen, can take pride in the day to day
responsibility as fire prevention advocates. It is prevention
that saves the most lives and your unheralded acts, whether
checking smoke detectors or planning escape routes with your
family, are the reason this national event endures.
As always, we remind you to conduct yourself
in a safe and responsible manner during the upcoming fall/winter
season. A few annual reminders and tips may help you avoid injury
and loss due to fire.
The burning of leaves and or garbage is prohibited
within the city; such fires pose a threat to the environment
as well as neighboring homes and property.
With the holiday season nearing be reminded
to use U.L. approved electrical decorations and check all electrical
decorations thoroughly for safety hazards prior to installation.
We also discourage the use of live trees inside the premises.
Homeowners and landlords should make sure that older heating
systems are thoroughly checked by a reputable professional prior
to the cold winter months. Fireplaces and chimneys should be
checked for cracks or obstruction, which could lead to carbon
monoxide poisoning or fire hazards.
Check fire extinguishers and smoke detectors
to ensure they function properly. Replace batteries in smoke
detectors or upgrade to detectors which are wired to the homes
The members of the fire department wish to thank
you for your continued support and take this opportunity to
wish you a safe and healthy holiday season!
