Message from the Chief – Around the House

May 12, 2023

The Fire Chief would like remind you of how to remain safe while around the house.

Here are some safety tips to follow:

  • Make sure your address numbers are up and visible from the street so we can see it.
  • Maintain a clear ‘fire zone’ of 10′ around structures.
  • Check outdoor electrical outlets and other electrical appliances for animal nests and to ensure proper wiring.
  • Keep 100′ of garden hose with an attached nozzle connected and ready for use.
  • Remove leaves and trash from carports and garages. Combustible materials are dangerous if they are exposed to heated automobile components, especially under the vehicle.
  • Clean up and properly store paints, pool and yard chemicals.
  • Check fuel containers for leaks and make sure they are properly stored.
  • Let power equipment sit and cool for approximately 30 minutes before placing it inside to be sure there is no possibility of fire.
  • Remember open air burning is not allowed.

Always DIAL 911 in an emergency!
