BMEMS Recruitment

The Fire Chief is looking for a few good Men and Women. Have you ever wondered who responds when there is a 9-11 fire or medical emergency?

Carbon Monoxide

Often called the invisible killer, carbon monoxide is an odorless, colorless gas created when fuels (such as gasoline, wood, coal, natural gas, propane, oil, and methane) burn incompletely. In the home, heating and cooking equipment that burn fuel are potential sources of carbon monoxide.

Smoke Detectors

Smoke Detectors are a key part of a home fire escape plan. When there is a fire, smoke spreads fast. Working smoke detectors give you an early warning so you can get outside quickly.

Check & Clean the Chimney

A National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA) study found that nearly three-fifths of home structure fires involving fireplaces, chimneys, and chimney connectors occur in December, January, and February.  January was the peak month for fireplace related injuries. Therefore,now is the time for you to take care of any needed maintenance.

Fires in Hire Rise Buildings

Large apartment buildings are built to keep people safe from fire.  Fire alarm systems detect smoke and fire. They will warn residents of danger.

Sprinkler Safety

Over 80% of fire deaths occur in the home.  Home fire sprinklers can save lives and property from fire.  They respond quickly and effectively to fire, often extinguishing the fire before the fire department arrives.  Only the sprinkler closest to the fire will activate, spraying water on the fire. 

College Campus Safety

The Fire Chief would like to raise your awareness about the dangers of fires among college-aged students who live in on- and off-campus college housing. This serves as an important reminder for students, parents and safety educators to review best safety practices and to reduce risk.

Escape Plan

Plan Ahead! If a fire breaks out in your home, you may have only a few minutes to get out safely once the smoke alarm sounds. Everyone needs to know what to do and where to go if there is a fire.

Odor of Gas

Gas leaks can result in fires and explosions. It’s important that you and your family know how to recognize a gas leak and what to do if you suspect a leak.

Emergency Vehicles

Emergency vehicles when using lights and sirens, whether it’s a Fire Truck, Ambulance, or Police vehicle, always have the right of way.  They may appear unexpectedly
