Fire safety starts with common sense

Nothing puts a damper on your favorite summer activities then loosing all the precious things you cherish to a preventable fire. Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson Fire and Emergency Service urges you to follow these simple safety tips:

The warm weather will not last very long, so take advantage of what Alaska has to offer. Enjoy barbequing year round but keep grills 10 feet from all structures. Fires occur very fast and with little warning, so be aware of how equipment is fueled.

Camping is a great activity to bring the family together, but proper gear and common sense can keep your loved ones safe.

If you have any question on these or any other fire prevention matters, call 552-2620.
