Looking for a new place to live? Click on the article for some great questions to ask about fire safety features.

You found an apartment or high-rise in your price range and the location is great. When you’re checking out the space, take a few minutes to check the fire safety features. And make sure you learn the building evacuation plan.

3 Consecutive Fire Sprinkler Success Stories in 3 Different Multi-Family Occupancies. Thanks to Pflugerville, TX FD Assistant Chief Daniel Berger for sending in these saves!

On Sept. 1st, shortly after midnight, a fire occurred on a 2nd-story balcony of a 3-story building. Our crews found a single piece of patio furniture was ignited by discarded smoking materials. The fire was contained by the activation of a single sprinkler.

Also on Sept. 1st, around 8:40pm, a fire occurred on a 3rd-story balcony of a 3-story building. Again, our firefighters found a fire that was caused by discarded smoking materials and contained by a single sprinkler activation.

The last of this series of fires occurred on Sept. 2nd, shortly after 5:00pm. Crews again were dispatched to a Box Alarm at an apartment complex. They arrived to find a fire in the living room of a unit located on the first floor of a 3-story building. This fire was determined to be caused by an unattended child playing with a lighter. Like the others, it was contained by a single sprinkler activation.

All in all, no one was displaced, no one was injured and the damages to property and contents was estimated to be $17,000 for the three incidents combined. This is an average of $5,666 in damage per incident.

Recently, we completed a study of fires in our jurisdiction for a five-year period (2018-2022). In looking back at that time frame, we knew we experienced several fires that started on balconies in multi-family occupancies. An examination of that data from that time period confirmed we experienced seven fires in unsprinklered multi-family occupancies that began on balconies. These fires caused $5.1M in total damages, for an average of $566,666 per incident.

If we were to subtract the damages from the recent Sept. 2nd fire that began in a living room, the total damages resulting from the two recent balcony fires in sprinklered multi-family occupancies was estimated to be $6,000, for an average of $3,000 per incident.

We understand there are limits with this data and there is not a large sample set to compare, but to me those numbers are staggering and provide further evidence to why we will always be huge advocates for fire sprinkler systems.

The Waller County Fire Marshal's Office and Office of Emergency Management received a call from a family asking for smoke alarms for their home. They had no smoke alarms.

Investigator Hensley and Willke installed three smoke alarms and two fire extinguishers. They demonstrated to the family on how to test the smoke alarms and deploy the fire extinguishers.

American Fire Systems, Inc. donated the smoke alarms that were installed and the fire extinguishers were donated by NICB-National Insurance Crime Bureau. This family can sleep a little safer tonight!

On 7/25/2023 at approximately 9:59pm, Champions ESD responded to a report of a structure fire involving a mobile home. Champions ESD units arrived on location in under 4 minutes to find a mobile home with smoke showing. All occupants were reported to outside; firefighters were able to locate the fire within the wall of a bedroom, and the fire was quickly extinguished. Damage was contained to the bedroom wall, and a window AC unit was determined to have caused the fire. Occupants advised that they were alerted to the fire by the smoke alarm and were able to evacuate and call 911 quickly.

The smoke alarm that detected the fire was provided free of charge by American Fire Systems and installed by Champions ESD Firefighters on 7/1/2023.

Here are some fireworks safety tips to make your 4th of July safe! 🇺🇸🗽🎇

💥Fireworks Safety Tips💥

-Always use fireworks outside and have a bucket of water/hose nearby in case of accidents.

-Designate a safety perimeter. If you have ground-based fireworks like a fountain, spectating from at least 35 feet away is best. For aerial fireworks, you’ll want everyone to move back to a distance of around 150 feet.

-Ditch faulty fireworks. Sometimes fireworks don’t go off, but duds always pose a risk. The important thing to know is that you should never try to relight or approach a failed firework. Let duds sit for 5 -10 minutes before you put them in a bucket of water.

-This can prevent injury from a delayed explosion and disarm the firework permanently so you can safely dispose of it.

-Supervise children when they are handling sparklers. Sparklers burn at about 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit—hot enough to melt some metals.

-Sparklers can quickly ignite clothing, and children have received severe burns from dropping sparklers on their feet or touching body parts.

-Don’t forget about your pets! Fireworks can be extremely stressful for pets, but there are ways to help reduce their fear and anxiety. Keep your pets indoors. Close the curtains or blinds and turn on the TV or radio to provide some distraction. Treat toys filled with their favorite food (frozen pumpkin puree, peanut butter, and apple sauce are good options) may also help keep their minds busy and distract them from the fireworks.

-Soak both spent and unused fireworks in water for a few hours before discarding.

-Never place a part of your body directly over a firework or hold a firework in your hand when lighting.

-To safely light fireworks, make sure they are secured on the ground away from people and animals and use a stem lighter such as a grill lighter.

-Only light one firework at a time. Lighting multiple fireworks at the same time increases the risk of accidents occurring from the fuse burning faster than designed.

-Avoid alcohol consumption when handling or using fireworks. This should be pretty self-explanatory.
Consider safe alternatives to fireworks such as party poppers, bubbles, silly string, or glow sticks.

💥Sparklers Are Dangerous💥

-Every year, young children can be found along parade routes and at festivals with sparklers in hand, but sparklers are a lot more dangerous than most people think.

-Sparklers burn at about 2,000 degrees – hot enough to melt some metals. Sparklers can quickly ignite clothing, and children have received severe burns from dropping sparklers on their feet. According to the National Fire Protection Association, sparklers alone account for more than 25% of emergency room visits for fireworks injuries. For children under 5 years of age, sparklers accounted for nearly half of the total estimated injuries.

-Consider using safer alternatives, such as glow sticks, confetti poppers or colored streamers.
