• Brownsburg Fire Territory cautions residents

    June 25, 2012 No comments

    With July 4th around the corner, BFT reminds residents to use caution. 

    With the dry conditions and July 4th coming up, the Brownsburg Fire Territory would like the community to be cognitive of using fireworks and discarding smoking materials.  Many mulch fires and grass fires can begin with a smoldering firework or cigarette/cigar.  They ask that you keep the following tips in mind during these dry conditions: 

    1. Never leave barbeque grills or portable fire-pits unattended.  Place them on concrete instead of grass.
    2. Never leave any fire unattended! Have a water source or fire extinguisher available.
    3. Dispose of cigarette butts in appropriate containers.  Don’t flip them out of car windows.
    4. Park vehicles so exhaust system does not come in contact with dry grass, leaves, or weeds.
    5. Remember firework safety. 
      1. Do not allow children to use lighters/matches.
      2. Place used sparklers and other firework material in a can of water.  Please do not leave on the grass.  Remember sparklers burn at 1200 °F.
      3. Don’t be near a building when using firework material.
      4. Preferably, do not use consumer fireworks.  Leave the fireworks to the professionals.
    6. Be Fire Safe!  People and Property depend on You!

    Any questions concerning Fire Safety, please contact your local fire department.
