Home Fire Plan

We would like to remind everyone how important it is to have a home fire plan.

Fire prevention is the best way to reduce the likelihood of a fire in your home.

Things to YOU can do to prevent a fire:

  • Keep combustibles away from all heat sources such as water heaters and space heaters
  • Clean build up of lint in your clothes dryer
  • Do not overload electrical outlets
  • Keep flammable liquids such as gasoline stored properly and away from all heat sources
  • Have your chimney cleaned and inspected yearly
  • Do not leave cooking food unattended

If you do have a fire it is important to have a home safety plan. This plan should include:

  • Smoke and carbon monoxide detectors to alert everyone of a fire
  • Home exit plan- what to do and how to get out of house if a fire occurs
  • Outside meeting place- meeting place outside the home to make sure everyone is out of the house
  • Discuss and practice this plan especially with children
  • Calling  911.

Thank You Larry McCormack!

The AFD would like to thank Larry McCormack of Crook County for his generous donation toward the purchase of two Automated External Defibrillators (AED).  These are used to help cardiac arrest patients and are a valuable tool for our medical responders and firefighters to use until paramedics arrive.
