Safety Topic: Controlled Burns/Brush Burns
In spring time, many people find themselves with the desire to clean up outdoors. As the ground and area dries out many people take the opportunity to have a "controlled burn" of left over wood or brush. It is important that the individual who has decided to have a burn ensures every safety measure is taken. Below are a few recommendations if an individual decides to take it upon themselves to have a burn.
Fire Prevention and Education is one of the most important functions of any Fire Department. Our goal is to provide the general public with access to information and activities that will help to increase awareness to fire and emergency situations, as well as how to properly respond if a dangerous situation occurs. With proper planning, preparedness and knowledge everyone can make better decisions regarding safety.
Safety Topic: Severe Weather
Severe weather season is here! It is not a question of "IF," but rather "WHEN?"
In certain situations, severe weather can occur with little warning. Be sure to have a plan of action and to think about what you would do in places other than your home, such as work, school, or places you could be when you are out and about! Have more than one way to be alerted of and be able to monitor severe weather. Mobile phone apps, a weather radio, AM/FM radio, local TV stations, and outdoor warning sirens are all good ways when used in conjunction with each other. For additional information, we recommend you visit NWS Milwaukee's Severe Weather Awareness Page.
