FROM THE FIRE CHIEF'S CORNER: HOLIDAY SAFETY FROM THE INSIDE OUT!

December 2, 2015 (San Diego's East County) - If you haven’t already, many of you have been thinking about pulling out those holiday decorations. ‘Tis the season’ but let’s exercise good common sense to ensure our holidays don't end up tragically reminds Fire Chief Sam DiGiovanna.

YOU BETTER WATCH OUT - FOR CROOKS, SHERIFF SAYS

 

December 17, 2013 (San Diego’s East County) – Thieves are easily tempted when people leave bags of gifts in plain sight in their vehicles or display presents under a tree in a front window. The San Diego County Sheriff’s Department is reminding everyone to be aware of criminals looking for easy targets during the holiday season.

FROM THE CHIEF'S CORNER: CHRISTMAS DAY SAFETY - IT'S HERE!

December 20, 2012 (San Diego) – Well Christmas is officially here! The last couple weeks we have focused on both outdoor and indoor holiday safety. Christmas day will arrive soon and there’s a few additional safety tips to be aware of!

We’re going to be cooking more over the next few days and on Christmas. Be careful wearing loose clothing around open flames on the stove. Use a timer and use “post it’s” to remind yourself of cooking times in the oven (were going to be distracted more this week than ever). Do not cool hot pans with water if grease is in the. Have a fire extinguisher near-by and know how to use it. A lid placed over a pan on fire will remove oxygen and put the fire out! Be careful using candles at the dinner table (especially if toddlers are present).

HAVE A HAPPY--AND SAFE--CHRISTMAS

but alas and alack ‘twas no fire screen there!
A few feet away stood the holiday tree
so majestic, so regal, and as dry as could be . . .
