Burleson Fire is ready to run emergency calls 24/7, but these tips will help you prevent a fire emergency this holiday season.

As stated by the National Fire Prevention Association, DLSC endorses the following safety tips:

*Make sure your Christmas tree is at least 3 feet away from any heat source (fireplace, radiator, space heater, heat vents, etc.).

*Replace any strands of lights that are worn, broken or frayed. Also, when putting lights outside, do not use lights intended for interior use. Make sure the lights are for outdoor use.

*Always turn tree lights off before leaving home or going to bed.

*Live Christmas trees are a fire hazard when they become dry and brittle. Be sure to water your live tree daily.

*Do not leave lit candles unattended.

*Make sure nothing is hanging too low in front of the fireplace. It is safe to decorate the top of a mantel, but it is not a good idea to have low hanging decorations or to decorate the hearth. Extreme heat and crackling fire can create a fire hazard.

We aren't trying to ruin your plethora of candles you bought during Bath and BodyWorks annual candle sale last week, we just want you to be safe. #BeSafeBurleson

Make sure you:
* Keep candles at least 12 inches from anything that can burn
* Think about using flameless candles in your home
* Remember to blow out all candles before you leave a room or go to bed
* Never use a candle if oxygen is used in the home
* Don't burn a candle all the way down - put it out before it gets too close to the holder or container
* Light candles carefully. Keep you hair and loose clothing away from the flame

12/03/2019

Please help us in congratulating Burleson Fire's very own, EMS Chief Casey Davis, who was honored at the Texas EMS Conference last week. Chief Davis received an award from the Department of State Health Services for EMS Public Information/Injury Prevention.

Casey was nominated for his passion for injury prevention and a heart for the community in which he serves.

Falls are one of the top mechanisms of injury which has led to increased efforts from trauma programs for community education. Casey, through his pioneering leadership, has been instrumental in reshaping how his department responds to falls. He has reeducated his staff to help identify a root cause for a fall.

Casey has also taken charge on implementing a Stop the Bleed program within the city. He holds quarterly public education sessions combining Active Shooter Training, Stop the Bleed, and Hands Only CPR to make for a more resilient community. Casey is actively involved with the local school district, Burleson ISD. He has trained the district nursing staff on bleeding control and obtained a grant that allows for bleeding control stations to be placed within each of the eighteen schools in the district. He is currently working to ensure that the district is compliant with the new bleeding control legislation (HB 496). Casey helped organize the first ISD Teacher Safety Day which included Active Shooter Training, Fire Extinguisher Training, and Hands Only CPR. This was very well received by ISD staff and will continue to be a part of the new school year in-service.

Casey’s initiatives have not stopped at the limits of his jurisdiction. He has reached out to neighboring schools which operate with more constrained resources. The neighboring schools would not normally have the resources to provide staff with these educational opportunities.

Through his tireless efforts, he continues to make our community a safer and more prepared place to live, work, and play. Casey has shown pioneering leadership in this non-traditional approach to community engagement and education.

Smoking is a leading cause of home fire deaths. Make sure to never smoke in bed. Mattresses and bedding can catch on fire easily. Do not smoke in bed because you might fall asleep with a lit cigarette.

🎼Oh, the weather outside is frightful, but the fire is so delightful🎼

Of course, the fire is not delightful if the ashes are not disposed of properly. You need to allow ashes to cool before disposing of them. Place ashes in a tightly covered metal container and keep the ash container at least 10 feet away from the home and any other buildings. Never empty the ashes directly into a trash can. Pour water on the ashes.

Outdoor Warning Sirens: Separating Fact from Fiction

This NBC DFW story does a fantastic job explaining outdoor warning sirens. For instance, they are called outdoor warning sirens not tornado sirens because they can alert you about much more than a tornado.

And, they are meant to tell people that are outside to seek shelter inside. They are not designed for you to be able to hear them inside your home. Once again, louder for those in the back. They ARE NOT designed to be heard inside your home.

10/24/2019

We are very excited to share that City Council approved construction costs for the relocation of Fire Station No. 2 during its regular meeting on Monday, October 21.

The new facility will be located at 250 E. Hidden Creek Parkway, near the intersection of E. Hidden Creek Parkway and S. Dobson St. The new building will replace the existing Station 2, which was built in 1995 and is located at 620 Memorial Plaza.

“Station 2 will be located off of Hidden Creek Parkway with quick access to Interstate I-35W while providing strategic access to major roadways for maximum efficiency in our response,” said Fire Chief K.T. Freeman. “With the growth of the city, the current location of Station 2 is hindering response capabilities to the city’s southern border, HighPoint Business Park and Hidden Vistas subdivision, as well as future residential development that will be located on CR 714.”

Originally built for one crew and minimal vehicles, Station 2 currently has limited amenities for the firefighters it houses. The proposed station will be able to house additional fire apparatuses and crews assigned to that district with room to grow. The new station will also meet modern standards for firefighter safety for de-coning gear. Also included in the layout is an emergency operation center which will assist in increasing the city’s ability to respond to disasters.

“We also want to make sure that the residents and business owners who currently are close to Station 2 understand that even with the move response times will remain consistent with the average response times throughout the city,” states Chief Freeman. “The city also has an automatic/mutual agreement with Fort Worth’s Station No. 42, located at Spinks Airport, which automatically will respond to any reported structure fire in this area.”

Newsome Construction Inc. was selected through a competitive bid process and will be providing the design, engineering and construction for the new fire station in an amount not to exceed $5,662,087. The funding is provided by bond sales and no increase in the property tax rate will be necessary.

Construction is expected to begin in November 2019 with completion in mid-2021. Firefighters will remain at the current station on Memorial Plaza until construction is complete. For more information: www.burlesontx.com/station2relocation

We are so excited to share with all of you that our Drowning Prevention Coalition won a statewide excellence award 🏆🏆🥇🥇We so appreciate all of the community's support for this program. #LifeguardYourChild #DrowningPrevention #NotOneMore We couldn't have done it without our partners Sigma Swimming The Burleson Recreation Center Cook Children's Texas Health Texas Health Burleson Fitness Center North Texas Jellystone Park Psycho Shanon

During the 2019 Texas Municipal League (TML) Annual Conference and Exhibition in San Antonio, the City of Burleson received a 2019 Municipal Excellence Award in public safety for cities over 25,000 in population. The award recognized the City for the Burleson Drowning Prevention Coalition.

Inspired to prevent childhood drownings, the City of Burleson Fire Department and marketing team created a public service video to raise awareness and encourage parents to safeguard their children. Wanting to do more, the Drowning Prevention Coalition, which consists of multiple community partners, formed and began collaborating on ways to end childhood drowning deaths. The result was a successful effort to provide swimming lessons, free of charge, to Burleson youth. To date, the Coalition is responsible for providing 1,500 children with swim lessons.

Our neighbors to the East had a rough night last night so we thought it was a good time to remind Burleson how to prepare for bad weather.

• Outdoor warning sirens are not designed to be heard inside your home, although some people will if they live close to where one is located. The sirens are designed to alert people that are outside to seek shelter inside. There are two messages that are played. One is a thunderstorm warning and the other is a tornado warning. You will hear both tones and a voice recording. For more information about the outdoor warning system and the warnings, https://www.burlesontx.com/468/Weather-Warning-Alerts

• So what should I rely on to know that a storm is coming?
We suggest a battery-powered weather radio with S.A.M.E. technology (programming to receive local alerts).

• How do I receive alerts on my phone?
The city has an opt-in weather notification system. (If you aren’t signed up you can do that here, https://member.everbridge.net/index/1772417038942931#/login)
The system is broken into two options: automated warnings and manual warnings.
If you opt for the automated warning option you will receive a warning whenever the National Weather Service issues a warning in our area. Their criteria are winds in excess of 58 mph. If you opt into manual warnings you will receive them when city officials send them out. The city follows the North Central Texas Council of Government weather policy which defines severe weather as a storm with the potential of producing hail at least one inch in diameter and/or winds in excess of 70 miles per hour.

• How do I prepare an emergency plan for my family?
