SPFD units responded to another outside fire today with a small outbuilding involved. Thank you to our mutual aid units from Aberdeen Fire & Rescue Department, Cypress Pointe Fire &Rescue, and Fort Bragg Fire Department.

The fire was accidental started by fire pit ashes that were discarded near a fence that reignited the pine straw.

The fact is that coals and ashes from fires can remain hot enough to start a fire for many days after you think the fire is out. The exact amount of time for complete extinguishment and cooling depends on many factors such as how hot the fire was, what was burning, how much unburned fuel remained, etc.

To be safe, simply treat all ashes and coals as hot, even when you think they had time enough to cool.

To properly dispose of ashes or coals we recommend the following:

Allow ashes and coals to cool in the area where you had the fire for several days. These devices are designed to contain their heat safely.

When it is time to dispose of the ashes, transfer them to a metal container and wet them down.
Keep the metal container outside your home and away from any combustibles until the refuse is hauled away.

DO NOT place any other combustibles in the metal container.

DO NOT use a combustible container.
Be Safe!

Hello! My name is Brandan and I work with Life Line Screening. We provide preventative health screenings for those aged 40+ to see if they are at risk for a stroke and cardiovascular disease. We have an event coming up in the community soon. I am trying to reach as much of the community as possible, and I was wondering if you could possibly share the event to your page to help spread the word, and let the community members know we will be coming in the community? Every Like, Tag, or Share could save a life. Thank you. facebook.com/events/998279723837966/

St. Peter, The Rock, will be honoring ALL 1st Responders on Sunday, September 30th. The service begins at 11:00am, and will include honoring ALL police officers, EMS workers, and firefighters, as well as the volunteers. We planned this event, at the beginning of the year, and the timing of this service is impeccable, especially after the work they’ve done, and are doing, during Hurricane Florence. Please share this event & encourage ALL first responders to come out, to fellowship with us. Lunch will be provided for the 1st responders, after service. Please help us to spread the word!!! Much love & God bless. #Vanguard #theRock #justathankyou #community

A huge thank you from Sandy Springs neighborhood to the guys that went around to help tack our loose shingles back to our houses. Y'all are awesome!! Thank you!!
I'd like to thank Firefighter Preston Williams for helping me out yesterday when my car was overheating. He looked under the hood, made some calls, and determined that the car was not safe to drive. I appreciated that extra effort. While I was waiting for a tow, Preston asked if everything was going ok. I'm lucky that it happened in a parking lot and that I had good people to help---Preston, Pam at Food Lion, USAA, Will from Burgess Towing in Robbins and Jason's Tire and Auto. Thank you, again!!
