Message from the Chief – Preventing Heat Related Injuries

June 10, 2022

The Fire Chief would like to remind you of preventative measures that can be taken to reduce the risk of heat-related fires. Weekends usually bring people outdoor for various activities and family barbecues. The following are a few tips to preventing Heat-Related Fires around the home:

  • Lawn mowers, weed eaters, chain saws, grinders and welders can all spark a vegetation
  • Do all yard work that requires gas or an electrical motor before 10AM, not in the heat of the
    day or when the wind is blowing.
  • Never use lawn mowers in dry vegetation.
  • Don’t overload circuits with fans and air conditioners. Overloaded circuits can start an
    electrical fire.
  • Don’t use a BBQ grill when the wind is blowing and be sure all coals are fully extinguished
    when done.
