The objective of the Fire Prevention Division is to promote fire and life safety initiatives through inpections, education and investigation.

A primary goal continues to be fire safety education. Listed below are some of the services that are offered by the Division throughout the year:

- Juvenile Fire Setters Program

- Safety Education in Schools

- Safety Education for Adults

- Fire Extinguisher Training

To provide the best chance of survival in the event of a fire in the home, all households should have working smoke detectors and a fire escape plan that is developed and practiced. Another key element is to sleep with your bedroom door in the CLOSED and latched position. Smoke from an unfriendly fire is the by-product of fire that is the most deadly. A CLOSED door will stop or slow the movement of smoke in your home. The closed door permits an individual to become alert in clean air and make decisions accordingly.

Shown below are photos from a house fire this past year in Sidney. Click here to view a video on bedroom doors and the importance of closing them when you sleep.

This photo shows a bedroom that had the bedroom door CLOSED...

...and this bedroom had the door OPEN.

** Remember to change the batteries in your smoke detectors when the time changes ~ 2 times/year **
