Thorsby - The best of both worlds

Fire Department

Dial 9-1-1

  • Alert everyone by shouting “Fire!”
  • If unfamiliar with how to use a fire extinguisher, escape is always the best answer.
  • Feel the door before opening it. If it’s hot, use another escape route.
  • Crawl low in smoke, the air is usually better near the floor of a smoke-filled room. Hold your breath if you have to make a dash through smoke or flames.
  • Close windows and doors as you escape from the building to cut down the draft and slow the fire.
  • Don’t jump from upper stories. Purchase an escape ladder and store near a window as your second means of escape. Jumping is your last resort.
  • Call 9-1-1 as soon as you get out of the house.
  • Never return to a burning building for any reason.
  • Get immediate medical treatment for anyone who has been burned or exposed to fire and smoke.

Remember

  • An hour of pre-planning may save lives.
  • Practice home fire drills with your family twice a year.
  • Check and replace batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors every six months.
  • Check your home for fire hazards and eliminate them.
  • Inspect your extinguisher for damage once a month and keep it fully charged.
  • If you know how and when to use them, portable fire extinguishers can save lives and property.
  • Our local fire department can advise you on fire safety for your home.
