Have you ever wondered who responds when there is a 9-11 fire or medical emergency? The answer is: its people just like you.

Fireworks Safety

Each July 4th, thousands of people, most often children and teens, are injured while using consumer fireworks. Despite the dangers of fireworks, few people understand the associated risks – devastating burns, other injuries, fires, and even death.

House Number Visibility

It’s a scary thought that in an emergency, if the Responders cannot find you, vital time is lost.  Emergency Services do struggle with finding numbers from a street view and it is highly difficult to see at night.

Lightning Safety

Remember, when you hear the roar, get indoors.  If you are caught outdoors and do not have the ability to seek shelter indoors, try to follow the tips.

Cooking at Home

Home cooking fires representing the leading cause of U.S. home fires, with nearly half (49 percent) of all home fires involving cooking equipment; unattended cooking is the leading cause of these fires.


Fire in the grill, under hot dogs and burgers, is a welcome sight at the family cookout. But fire anywhere else can make your summer kick-off barbecue memorable for all the wrong reasons.

Lithium Batteries

Lithium-ion batteries supply power to many kinds of devices including smart phones, laptops, scooters, e-cigarettes, smoke alarms, toys, and even cars. Take care when using them.

Religious Candle Safety

Lit candles are used in religious services, in places of worship, and in the home. Whether you are using one candle or more, make sure you take a few moments to learn about using candles safely.

Places of Public Assembly

Every day, millions of people wake up, go to work or school, and take part in social events.  But every so often the unexpected happens: an earthquake, a fire, a chemical spill, an act of terrorism or some other disaster.  Routines change drastically, and people are suddenly aware of how fragile their lives and routines can be.  Each disaster can have lasting effects — people may be seriously injured or killed, and devastating and costly property damage can occur. People entering any public assembly building need to be prepared in case of an emergency

Daylight Savings Time Begins
