Prevent Fire. Save Lives.
A Fire Safety Campaign for People 50-Plus
At age 50 you’ve worked for years to enjoy the freedom and experiences life has to offer. At age 65 you’ve become a mover and shaker—meeting new people, traveling, spending time with the grandchildren and learning new hobbies. Don’t let your years of memories and your life today go up in flames.
As you age, your risk of death from fire increases significantly. Practice safe smoking, safe cooking, and safe heating in your home. With a little fire safety know-how and this website http://www.usfa.fema.gov/campaigns/50plus/index.shtm, you can help save lives from unintentional fires, including your own.
BFPD received a grant from the Assistance to Firefighters Grant (AFG) for over $100,000 for hose, nozzles, and appliances. The grant will be used to replace supply hose with a larger size, aging fire attack hose, nozzles, firefighting appliances, and equipment. This grant will allow the services we provide to citizens and neighbors of the District to be enhanced and keep our firefighters safe! The District is required to match 10% of the funds during the performance of the grant.
