We will continually meet the needs of the public, by addressing current issues relating to Fire Safety and the Fire Department. It is our mission to persuade, prevent, and protect the citizens of our community, further reducing the grim national fire loss statistics.
- Smoke Detectors
A smoke detector is the best early fire detection device available to the average homeowner. Having a properly placed and maintained smoke detector increases your chances of survival by 50%.Most residential fire deaths occur between 11 P.M. and 7 A.M. This is the time of greatest danger, when people are asleep. The primary killer is smoke and poisonous gases which overcome victims as they sleep. From the time a fire breaks out there is a limited amount of time that a person has to escape. By having an early warning of a smoke detector, you can be awakened during the early stages of a fire while escape is still possible. For more information, click here

Because fire grows and spreads so rapidly, the number one priority for residents is to get out safely. For more information, click here.

- Tornado Awareness Safety
Each year, severe weather can disrupt our lives, putting us in situations that are sometimes unfamiliar to us. As summer approaches and tornado season is in full swing, it is a good time to review how to prepare for a tornado disaster and review some important changes that have taken place. When a tornado warning is issued, immediate action is required. Preparedness begins by identifying a safe location well in advance of any severe weather and having a way to get weather alerts wherever you are, such as from a NOAA weather radio. When a watch or warning is broadcast, people should already have a plan on what to do and where to go. Fore more information, click here
