A PARTIAL FIRE BAN IS IN PLACE YEAR ROUND
FALL FIRE SAFETY MESSAGE
Your local fire department is reminding all residents and property owners in our service area to observe the following best practices for a fire safe home this fall:
*Ensure you have your chimneys cleaned, as well as laundry dryer vents - two common
fall fire risks if not maintained.
*When using space heaters - give them at least three feet clearance on all sides and keep
them away from curtains and any other material that may come in contact with the heater.
*Have an escape plan in your home- make sure you have at least two ways out and
practice this with everyone who lives with you.
Also, as the busy summer draws to a close and we settle in for the colder months, consider how you might be able to help your local fire station. We're always looking for new team members - volunteer, paid on-call, and staff positions. Whether you're looking for a new career, a career change, or just wanting to be a part of team, we've got a solution for you!
Currently there are excellent staff positions open for applicants:
-Fire Captain (x2)
-Assistant Fire Chief (x1)
Please view the posting below for more detail.
Take care and be safe!
