It’s fun to decorate for the winter holidays, but holiday decorations can increase your risk for a home fire. As you deck the halls this season, be fire smart and keep your family safe by following these safety tips:



Keep decorations, or any other flammable items at least 3 ft away from open flame and heat sources.



Christmas Trees - If your household includes a natural tree keep your tree away from fireplaces, and other heating sources. Be sure to keep the stand filled with water. Discard your tree when it is dry and begins dropping needles. A dry and neglected tree is a fire hazard!
Extension Cords - Inspect for damage before use. Make sure extension cords are properly rated for their intended use. Extension cords should never be strung together or placed under rugs, carpets or furniture.
Holiday Cooking - never leave cooking equipment unattended and turn off burners if you have to leave the room.

Holiday Lights - Inspect for frayed wires, bare spots, broken or cracked sockets and excessive wear, and throw out damaged sets. Read the manufacturer’s instructions to learn the number of light strands you can safely connect.


the Gift that Keeps Giving


Install smoke alarms on every level of your home and outside each sleeping area.

Be sure to test the alarms once a month and change the batteries annually.

Candle Use - Try flameless candles in your home they look and smell like real candles. If you do burn candles use sturdy holders and keep them away from combustible items. Never leave them unattended and make sure they are out before going to bed.

Fire District's Insurance Rating Improves

The Fire District was recently evaluated by the Washington Surveying and Rating Bureau (WSRB) as part of their Community Update Program. Residents and Property Owners will be pleased to know that the Fire District rating has improved from class 5 to class 4, effective February 1, 2015. This rating applies to buildings that are within 1,000 feet of a hydrant with an adequate water supply, and the building is located within five miles from the fire station.

Fire Protection agencies throughout the state are periodically reviewed by the WSRB to determine the level of fire protection they offer to their communities. The WSRB evaluates departments in a number of categories such as water supply (hydrants), equipment, facilities, staffing, response times, training, fire prevention, code enforcement and communications. Protection classes range from 1-10, a 1 being the highest and a 10 being the lowest protection rating.

This improvement in the rating may have an impact on insurance premiums. The WSRB recommends that residents and property and business owners of Fire District 27 contact their insurance carriers to check for possible savings as a result of this change.
