Safety Tips

Tips from the Chief

To help your family stay safe, Chief Bumgarner offers the following fire safety tips:

  • Test smoke and CO detectors every month
  • Change batteries in detectors once a year
  • Plan an exit drill from your home and practice it
  • Have a place to meet outside and wait for the Fire Department
  • If your clothes catch on fire "stop, drop, and roll." Don't run - fall to the ground, cover your face, and roll around until the fire is out!

Practice

Practice this with your kids and use common sense when you are using fire around the house. Remember, fire is a tool we use every day.
