We don’t pat ourselves on the back often but the Chiefs Office would like to remind the community how proud we are of our dedicated members that volunteer there time to protect them. Early this morning we were hit with a quick barrage of calls all in a short period of time . This required all 4 of our ambulances and 2 trucks to be manned and out at the same time. To add to this ….this morning we had a ladder truck training going on , a crew assisting at a 5K run and a crew that just came off an all night ambulance stand by assisting another department. Great job by all who were able to help this morning ! True dedication for a Father’s Day morning! ...

Summertime means BBQ season is here.
It’s all fun and games at the BBQ until someone catches on fire! Proper precautions should be a top priority when it comes to grill safety. Make sure to always employ these grill safety tips.
1. Keep Your Grill’s Surrounding Area Safe
This means no smoking around the grill, making sure the tank is completely shut when not in use, and generally keeping anything that can easily catch fire a safe distance away.
2. Keep a Fire Extinguisher Around
Make sure it's always in proper working order and inspect it annually. More importantly, learn how to use it!
3. Never Turn On a Gas Grill With the Lid Closed
Always make sure the control knob is in the “off” position. Never turn on a gas grill with the lid closed. Ventilation is necessary because trapped propane can ignite and cause an explosion.
4. Beware of Grease Fires
Should a grease fire break out, do NOT put water on it. Turn the grill off completely and cover it with the lid. Dumping baking soda on the fire is your best bet, so try to have a box of it handy when grilling! It is important to clean the grill after each use as it will help prevent grease buildup.
5. Never Leave Your Grill Unattended
Fires can double in size every minute, so it's important to always keep an eye on the grill. Stay close by so you can make sure that your BBQ fire stays nice and tame. ...
