A Note From the Chief…Just an ounce of prevention

img202Fire Chief Lonnie Kauffman gives these tips and suggestions. “Recognize that fire can strike anywhere and at anytime. Know the basics of using fire extinguishers and how to call 9-1-1 if there is smoke in the house. Call from your cell phone or a neighbor’s house. Working smoke detectors must be top priority. Every home and business needs an evacuation plan.”

Chief Lonnie thanks the firefighters for working together for the good of the community. He says, “In our Bird-in- Hand homes, schools, and churches we need to teach our children and remind each other about helping our neighbors. Then residents will want to maintain quality fire protection as a goodwill service.”
