IMPROPER FIRE BEHAVIOUR

“When a fire claims a child or seriously burns a child, it calls into question our ability as a fire service to properly protect the public. Preventing fires deaths is not reflected in many fire dept budgets. So, if the budget doesn’t take Prevention seriously, why should the community?” ~Robert Avsec, Executive Fire Officer

WILDFIRE - A CLIMATE EMERGENCY

Expect fire in the woods and smoke in the air for decades to come. This is what the future will look like, and worse. So if anyone hasn’t gotten the message yet, they’d better get it now.” ~Robert W. Gray, Fire Ecologist

WHEN FIRE MEETS POVERTY

“The first goal of fire prevention is Life Safety, which is to prevent injury or loss of life. Human life and health always take top priority in an emergency. The second goal of fire prevention is to prevent property damage and reduce the likelihood of poverty.” ~Ales Jug, PhD

“You can change the world, instead of protecting yourself from it.” Julien Smith
