Do you have a burning question

What question do you have about how the fire department runs, what kinds of emergencies we respond to, what life is like for firefighters, what the training is like...  Select questions will receive a video response on Facebook during the month of October, Fire Prevention Month. Please note that this is not a venue for complaints.  Thank you for participating!

  • Test Your Smoke Alarm - Install a smoke alarm on every floor of your home and outside all sleeping areas. Test the smoke alarms once a month and change the batteries twice a year.
