Messages from the Eaton’s Neck Fire Departmentr /> By Rich Baer

      In the event of an emergency situation, call 757-5700 immediately. Trained members of the fire department will respond to provide help.

 

      Although winter should be ending, snow continues to fall.  If you have a fire hydrant in front of your home, please make a path to the hydrant in order that firefighters  can access the hydrant and get water to extinguish a fire. Thank you.

 

     The nature of fire is such that each year 2,500 people and 12,600 are injured in home fires in the U.S. The monetary cost is $7.3 billion annually.Home fires can be prevented.

 

     To protect yourself,  it is important to understand the basic characteristics of fire. Fire spreads quickly, there is no time to gather valuables or make a phone call. In just to minutes, a fire can become  life-threatening.  In five minutes, a residence can be engulfed in flames.

 

     Heat and smoke from fire can be more dangerous than the flames. Inhaling the super-hot air can sear your lungs. Fire produces poisonous gases that make you disoriented and drowsy. Instead of being awakened by a fire, you may fall into a deeper sleep. Asphyxiation is the leading cause of fire deaths, exceeding burns by a three to one ratio. 

  • Fire is FAST, in less than 30 seconds a small flame can get completely out of control and turn into a major fire.

  •  Fire is HOT! Heat is more threatening than flames. A fire’s heat alone can kill. Room  temperatures in a fire can be 100 degrees at floor level and rise to 600 degrees at eye level. Inhaling this super-hot air will scorch your lungs. This heat can  melt clothes to your skin. In five minutes, a room can get so hot that everything in it ignites at once. This is called flashover!

  •  Fire is DARK. It is not bright, its pitch black. Fire starts bright, but quickly produces black smoke and complete darkness. If you wake up to a fire, you may be blinded, disoriented and unable to find your way around the home you have lived in for years.

  •  Fire is DEADLY. Smoke and toxic gases kill more people than flames do. Fire uses up oxygen you need and produces smoke poisonous gases that kill.  Breathing even small amounts of smoke and toxic gases can make you drowsy, disoriented and short of breath. The odorless, colorless fumes can lull you into a deep sleep before the flames reach your door.

      It is only when we know the true nature of fire that we can prepare our families and ourselves.  Make a family fire escape plan and practice it. Be sure that smoke and C O alarms are working, test them each month. Replace them according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
