Despite any recent rainfall and springtime blooming in full swing, we are once again in the Very High fire danger category according to the WDNR's website. With warming temperatures, steady winds, and a lack of any significant rain in the forecast, it's not going to get any better in the near future.

PLEASE! be careful with your outdoor gatherings and activities. While we have missed seeing our great community during the pandemic, having us respond to a vegetation fire is not the way we want to meet you again.

As always, you can find the most up to date outdoor fire danger information at the following link: https://dnr.wi.gov/topic/ForestFire/restrictions.asp

Kidde Recalls TruSense Smoke and Combination Smoke/Carbon Monoxide Alarms Due to Risk of Failure to Alert Consumers to a Fire

Please take the time to check your smoke detectors today. If you have Kidde TruSense smoke or combination smoke-carbon dioxide detectors, Kidde has a recall out for some of these detectors. There is a risk that they may fail to alert you in the event of a fire or carbon monoxide emergency.

You can read more about the recall and the models affected at the Consumer Product Safety Commission's notice page located here: https://www.cpsc.gov/Recalls/2021/kidde-recalls-trusense-smoke-and-combination-smoke-carbon-monoxide-alarms-due-to-risk#

Consumers should immediately contact Kidde for a free replacement alarm. Consumers should keep using the recalled alarms until they install replacement alarms.

The little bit of rain we received last week gave us a short respite from dry conditions. In less than 24 hours we have gone from low fire danger risk to high with the expectation that we will be in the very high category soon.

With the continued fair weather, low humidity, and spring winds, we will see another extended period of wildland fire concerns until we see more rain and the vegetation start to green up.

Be mindful of your outdoor activities; campfires are not the only cause of grass and vegetation fires. Updated fire danger risk can be found at the DNR's burning restrictions page: https://dnr.wi.gov/topic/ForestFire/restrictions.asp

It's hard to believe, just a few days ago we had close to 3 inches of snow on the ground, and today we have to be concerned about wildland fire danger.

The rising temperatures, lack of snow cover, and spring winds have placed our area in the high fire danger category already. With little to no precipitation and continued steady winds through the weekend, it won't be long until we are in the Very High, to Extreme wildfire categories.

Be conscious of your outdoor activities, if you have a burn permit, it may be canceled if the dry conditions persist. As a reminder, other than recreational fires, you need a permit to open burn, the burning of grass and leaves, and the use of burn barrels is prohibited in the Village of Howard.

In addition to checking your alarms and changing batteries if needed; with the early warm weather and spring winds, vegetation will be drying out at a quicker than normal pace.

Property owners who have wooded backyards, or backyards that abut a wood area/conservancy, make sure dead debris is removed and tall vegetation is taken care of to minimize the chance of a vegetation fire encroaching on your home. The time between now and when everything begins to turn green, is the time of greatest risk for wildland fire in Wisconsin.

Howard Fire was fortunate to have beautiful weather to conduct their annual ice rescue training for the second straight year. Department members have to refresh their skills annually and we choose to do this training in February to make sure we are ready for any potential issues during the spring thaw.

Here are some photos from this past Saturday's training at the Quarry.

Well, it's been a while since we had to worry about any potential significant snow, and here we sit and wait to see if it actually happens. If we see the amount of snow they have been predicting, please take the time to clear out around fire hydrants if you should have one on your property. The time you take to clear the hydrant now is time we don't need to waste getting the hydrant clear during a fire.

As always, if you or someone you know is not able to clear the snow from the hydrant and want it taken care of, please reach out to us, and we will get a crew over to clear it as soon as we can.

Drive safely!

With the recent warm, sunny, and breezy weather we have experienced this week, there is an increased fire risk with the lower humidity of fall and the dying vegetation. Be careful with your recreational fires this weekend and for those who live in the village, the burning of leaves and grass is prohibited.

Daylight savings time ends this weekend, when you change your clocks back, check your CO and smoke detectors.

If you have battery-operated or hardwired detectors with battery backups, please take the time to replace the battery. If you have a newer sealed 10-year smoke detector, test the detector and check the date of manufacture. Manufacture dates are normally listed on the back of the detector.

Regardless of type, smoke detectors usually last up to 10 years so if your alarm is older than 10 years old it should be replaced. CO Detectors typically last 5-7 years, some less; please check the product information sheet that came with your detector for the specific time frame.

The National Fire Protection Association statistics on home fires:
Three out of five home fire deaths result from fires in properties without working smoke alarms.
38% of home fire deaths result from fires in which no smoke alarms are present.
The risk of dying in a home fire is cut in half in homes with working smoke alarms.

Many of the normal fundraising events held throughout the year have gone virtual in 2020 for obvious reasons and to follow suit, so has the annual MDA Fill the Boot campaign. Since 1954, fire departments across the nation have participated in this tradition, raising much-needed funds for the Muscular Dystrophy Association.

Howard Fire Rescue is joining the virtual drive to continue our efforts in supporting the MDA community. You can help raise funds through Howard Fire Rescue by following this link to our virtual Fill the Boot page and donate today.

Howard Fire Rescue would like to thank Barlament Er****on Crane Rentals for lifting the last container and placing it at the top of our newly created training tower.

More photos to come as we work on finishing the build and start using the training facility to maintain the skills of our firefighters.

On July 16, Barlament Er****on assisted us with lifting the last of our six containers, placing it on the top of the stack we built, completing the creation of our new training tower at Howard Fire Station 2.

In the coming months, we will be finishing the interior by installing half walls and staircases to mimic the conditions we will find inside buildings and creating doors and windows on the exterior for department members to practice ladder placement and working off of ladders to gain access to buildings.
