Around the House

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

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.

People entering any public assembly building need to be prepared in case of an emergency
