The winter months are the peak months for heating fires, which are the second leading cause of U.S. Home fires, deaths and injuries.

Help stay safe this winter by following these tips:

  • Keep anything that can burn at least three-feet away from heating equipment
  • Never use your oven to heat your home
  • Have heating equipment and chimneys cleaned and inspected every year by a qualified professional
  • Remember to turn portable heaters off when leaving the room or going to bed
  • Make sure the fireplace has a sturdy screen to stop sparks from flying into the room. Ashes should be cool before putting them in a metal container. Keep the container a safe distance away from your home
  • Test smoke alarms at least once a month.

Each year, Team Members from the Richmond Suppression Department provide hand portable fire extinguisher training to approximately 500-600 people in the Mid-Atlantic region. During these training sessions a video on how to properly use fire extinguishers is shown and then a live controlled fire training session is conducted. During the live training a designated area is taped off and a large fire rated pan is filled with water and then a mixture of gasoline and diesel fuel are added and ignited. The trainees are then given the opportunity to put out the fire with a dry chemical extinguisher using the PASS technique. This training class is significant in providing people with the proper way to safely extinguish a fire with a fire extinguisher.

Eagle Fire Team Members participated in a safety day at one of our customers on October 23rd. This training day is held annually for their personnel. Topics ranged from defensive driving to snake awareness. Eagle Fire trained employees on the proper way to use a ground monitor- a water cannon that can be used to fight fires close by. Traffic cones were placed up to 200 feet away. People then got to operate the ground monitor and practiced knocking the cones down with the water jet. Eagle Fire Team Members also educated the staff on the science behind firefighting. About 65 people participated and were very appreciative of Eagle Fire taking the time to come out.
