FIRE PREVENTION CENTER
Regional Fire and Rescue wants to see you healthy and safe. That's why we focus on fire prevention and public education. In addition to Structure Fires, Vehicle Fires, Brush Fires, and EMS, we are also actively conducting additional activities throughout our community.
Stop, drop, and roll is the most effective way of putting out clothing that has caught fire. Learn these simple steps and practice the procedure.
If your clothes catch on fire: STOP, DROP, COVER YOUR FACE, AND ROLL
STOP – where you are – do not run
DROP – down to the floor or ground
COVER YOUR FACE - with your hands
ROLL – back and forth many times until the fire is out
Smoke can be just as dangerous as fire. Get below the smoke. Crawl on your hands and knees keeping your head one to two feet above the floor where the air will be the coolest and cleanest. Stay low and go! When escaping a fire, make sure you first test the doorknob and spaces around the door with the back of your hand. If it is cool, slowly open the door and look for signs of smoke or fire. If you see or feel smoke, heat, or flames, try an alternate escape route.
When a smoke alarm sounds, Find the nearest exit, go outside, and stay out! Make an escape plan with your family and remember to practice it. Once you are outside, go to your meeting place.
Firefighters wear special clothes that are made to protect them while they work in dangerous situations. This helps them do a better job while staying safe and helping people out of a fire.
If you are ever in a fire and see a firefighter in their special clothes, don't be scared or hide, they are there to help you.
