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 electrical system.
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!
