Daylight Savings

October 30th, 2013 - Don't forget that next week Sunday, November 3rd, we fall back with daylight savings and turn our clocks back one hour. This is also a good time to replace the batteries in your carbon monoxide and smoke detectors. Remember that these devices save lives!!

Furnace Maintenance
October 27th, 2013 - As the weather gets cooler, we will start heating our homes for the crisp desert winter months.  The Silver Creek Fire Department has some furnace safety tips to help keep your family & friends safe!  It is important to change your furnace filter regularly. The filter is usually found just inside the front cover of the furnace or it may have its own access door on the front of the furnace. A clean filter will help your furnace burn more efficiently, and will help keep dust from being circulated through your home. Follow these safety tips to keep your furnace running its best through the winter.
  • Keep the area around your furnace clean and unobstructed.
  • Keep the burner area of your furnace clean.
  • Furnaces that require lubrication on the motors and bearings should be attended to by a qualified heating technician once a year.
  • Do not allow anything combustible within six inches of the vent pipe.
  • Do not close off more than 20% of the registers in your house. This can cause high resistance and unnecessary heat buildup in your furnace.
  • Do not store combustible material such as paint thinners or gasoline near your furnace.

may - Motorcycle awareness month

May 12th, 2013 - More than 4,000 people died from motorcycles crashes in 2011, a number that's steadily increasing, the National Highway Traffic Administration says. The Silver Creek Fire Department reminds automobile drivers to stay alert on the roads. Motorcyclists have all the same rights and privileges as any motor vehicle driver on the roadway. During Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month in May - and during the rest of the year - drivers of all other vehicles and all road users are reminded to safely "share the road" with motorcyclists, and to be extra alert to help keep motorcyclists safe.

spring clean up

March 26th, 2013 - A thorough spring cleaning can mean more than the good feeling that comes with maintaining the appearance of your home. If done properly, spring cleaning can also improve the safety of your home & family in the event of a fire.

One of the most important ways that cleaning around the house can improve safety is if you spend the time to reduce the clutter inside & around your home & garage. While clutter does not start fires, it can become the fuel for a fire. More fuel makes fires more difficult for the Fire Department to extinguish. Clutter may also make it more difficult for those in your home to escape when a fire breaks out.

Maintain the yard surrounding your house. Trim bushes, plants & trees, & get rid of large weeds. Removing vegetation clears fuel for any potential fire. Some neighborhoods may offer a pickup of yard debris. Make sure that any vegetation around the house is at least 10 feet away from your home & chimney. Keep gutters & roofs clear of leaves & other buildup.

Another important step in the spring cleaning process is to reduce or eliminate hazardous chemicals in your home. Cleaners, paint & other common household chemicals can fuel a fire & are often hazardous to your health. Maintain only the amounts you need & be sure to use, store & dispose of household hazardous materials in a safe manner as outlined on the product. Never mix chemicals, even when disposing of them.

Daylight Savings

March 10th, 2013 - On Sunday March 10th, we spring ahead with daylight savings. Turn your clocks ahead one hour on Sunday morning. Spring into action by replacing the batteries in your carbon monoxide and smoke detectors. Remember that these devices save lives!!
