If you do not want our regular service, we are prepared for those special calls.
In 2004 I discovered the joy of fighting fire as volunteer in a small community. (If you have ever wondered what you could do for your community, stop by your local fire hall and ask about becoming a volunteer.) I became aware of chimney fires in my first year with 7 fires in 5 months. That year I found myself traveling to Indianapolis to attend the Chimney Safety Institute of America. I like to say that I am now the first on scene on most chimney fires before they ever become an issue. I love my job!!! I love teaching people about the joys and dangers of fire.
- Take the fire extinguisher out of the closet/cabinet/garage,
check it and put it where you can get to it quickly. Most fires can be
extinguished in the first 2 minutes with a simple ABC fire extinguisher.
- Change the batteries in your smoke detector (get one if you don't have one or three)
- Make a fire plan and practice it. Like you did in grade school!
The difference between a victim and a rescuer
the mindset with which they enter the situation.
