West Allis multi-vehicle fatal crash; I-894 NB near National Avenue

An absolutely tragedy but a reminder of how dangerous the roadways are.
- If involved in a crash, stay in your vehicle.
- If able to, move vehicles to a safer location.
- While the law is , for emergency vehicles, road crews and tow trucks; make this a common practice for any stopped vehicle.
- and finally, buckle up and be patient.

A woman is dead and a man injured following a multiple-vehicle crash that happened on northbound I-41/894 near National Avenue on Friday morning, Dec. 23.

Christmas tree fires are more common between 3pm and midnight, and the longer a natural tree is kept up after Christmas, the more likely it is to dry out and ignite. Keep those beautiful, natural trees watered and unplug the lights before bed. Stay safe and enjoy the holidays! 🎄

Baby, it's cold outside 🎶🥶 While temperatures have dropped, car seat safety is still as hot-topic as ever! This winter, remember to avoid common car seat mistakes, such as wearing bulky clothing and puffy jackets when riding in a 5-point harness.

Thick winter clothing takes up space between your child and the harness straps, which results in a harness that is too loose. In a crash, that clothing will compress which could cause your child to be ejected from their car seat.

Instead, dress them in clothing no thicker than a sweater or fleece jacket, and place a blanket over them once they're buckled in safely. You can still use a puffy jacket to keep them warm…just buckle your child in the harness first, then put their winter jacket on them backwards!

During extremely cold weather or winter storms, staying warm and safe can be a challenge. Winter storms can bring cold temperatures, power failures, loss of communication services, and icy roads. To keep yourself and your loved ones safe, you should know how to prepare your home before a winter storm hits.

Did you know that cooking fires are the number one cause of home fires and home injuries? If you have a small (grease) cooking fire on the stovetop, smother the flames by sliding a lid over the pan and turning off the burner. For an oven fire, turn off the heat and keep the door closed.

North Shore Fire/Rescue wishes you a happy and safe Thanksgiving!

Following this unfortunate burn injury, please follow these safety tips when handling flammable liquids.

Gasoline’s only proper use is to power engines. Fill gas-powered equipment only when the engine is cool. Gasoline should be stored in an approved portable container and placed in as secure, cool, well-ventilated area away from the house, potential flame sources, and out of the reach of children. Don't open gas cans in basements or garages or other closed in spaces where the v***r is more likely to ignite because of less air movement and more ignition sources. Fumes are capable of ignition up to 12 feet from the source.

Most injuries occur at home through misuse or improper storage. Even products such as turpentine or tile bonding agents can present a serious risk of flame or chemical injury if not used with fire safety in mind.

Stay safe!

Today’s unsprinklered homes burn faster than ever, with residents having as little as 2 minutes to safely escape from the time the smoke alarm signals. In contrast, installed fire sprinklers are designed to allow 10 minutes for people to escape. That’s vital protection that prevents injuries and saves lives. Something to consider if you are building or remodeling.

Myth-buster: Unlike what we see from Hollywood, only the sprinkler near the fire will activate!

is the perfect opportunity to introduce or increase your messaging about home fire sprinklers. Hear tips from Lorraine Carli in this new blog: http://nfpa.social/Fi9150L0b9t

Counterfeit or “copycat” car seats have been showing up for sale on the internet as more people are shopping online. These fake seats do not meet federal standards that are set to protect children in a crash.
