Be looking for an upcoming Facebook post that provides all the specs for the new Quint 7.

Christmas tree fire: watered tree vs. dry tree

We've been reminding you about keeping your live Christmas tree watered. Here's a great visual that shows just how quickly a dry tree can turn deadly.

According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), more than 200 home fires each year start with a Christmas tree. In this video, NIST fire researchers demonstrate what could happen if a fire starts in a watered Christmas tree vs. a dry Christmas tree. For Christmas tree safety tips, visi...

Our crews are at a working structure fire at a two-story office building in the 6100 block of Tennyson Parkway. Initial call was for a second alarm but those crews have been released. First arriving crews found all people out of the building and the fire extinguishing system going off. A small explosion blew out a window on second floor. No reports of injuries and crews entered the building to find no fire to extinguish. The building is being ventilated and a fire investigator is on scene.

A gasoline leak was detected yesterday and our HazMat and Truck 4 have been on scene monitoring the underground leak. Private environmental clean up company Protect Environmental is there working on getting the leaked gasoline mitigated. One lane is closed but no major traffic issues are expected.

On Monday Sue Uecker asked the burning question, "I have a patio. It is open on two sides. Would it be safe to have a small metal fire pit on it on cold nights. Thank you!"
We checked with our Fire Prevention Division and Captain @DonGladney provided us this answer:
Our recommendation would be to only use a UL-listed fire pit and then follow the directions for use. The fire pit should be 15 feet from any combustible construction and continually monitored by an adult, with a source for extinguishment available at all times.

Each year, from 2016 to 2018, fire departments in the US responded to an estimated average of 189,300 cooking fires in residential buildings.
These fires caused an estimated 170 deaths, 3,300 injuries and $443 million in property loss.
To prevent becoming a statistic remember these three things:
- Unattended cooking is the leading cause of home cooking fires.
- Most home cooking fires happen on the stovetop.
- Frying foods is the greatest risk for a home cooking fire.
Remember: Fire is Everyone’s Fight!

I just wanted to share and thank the brave #PlanoFireDepartment team! They showed up in less than a minute with great response!
There's a fire alarm going off at (IMC powered by Parts Authority 2601 Resource Dr #100, Plano, TX 75074) it's been going off for half an hour and no one's done anything about it not only is the fire alarm going off but there's some sort of other alarm going off as well It's really loud and I'm all the way on the other side
We had a kitchen fire a long time ago and know how quickly it can spread. Thanks for the opportunity to share the #1 cause of house fires with our Plano kid !
Please share and ask your friends to share this I was going out to run an errand early before the heat of the day . As I approached my apartment gate to leave I saw two cars that had just been in a horrible accident !!! One of the cars was flipped upside down and the person was still trapped and at this point the police nor the ambulance had arrived yet What I witnessed instead was strangers coming together that witnessed it while driving by and the hero’s at Barksdale Elementary School that we’re outside all jumped in and helped There was a person in the street helping to direct traffic , folks were taking to the person in the flipped car trying to do what they could tell the paramedics and all came My heart was aching for the person in the car but it was so wonderful seeing all these folks helping I also of course must commend the Plano police , Plano fire and rescue for their quick actions to get the person out safely I could not even leave till I knew the person was ok and turn they blocked the entrance any way Once they got her out the officer said they would let me out and I said it was ok I just wanted to make sure they were ok and all He wanted to make sure I was ok and all as I think he knew I was heartbroken I thanked him for all that they do and I said I hope the person was ok The good news is they were alert and moving Thanks again to all the incredible strangers that stopped to help . Please share and I’d love for some of the Barksdale folks to see this
Thank you guys. Looking for mobile Covid19 testing for my GMa
A gentle reminder on behalf of the US Census.
On behalf of the US Census, happy 4th of July and thank you for your service.
On behalf of the US Census, a gentle reminder.
With the spike of Covid 19 cases here in Texas over the past few weeks I was surprised to see these two firemen not wearing masks in a store full of people at Kroger yesterday. It was about 11:30am in the Kroger at Custer and Parker, and the store was packed with elderly shoppers. There were only 4 people in the crowded store not wearing masks, and these gentlemen were 2 of the 4. My concern is not only for the fellow shoppers, but for these firefighters as well.
Happy belated Father's Day from the US Census.

Very thankful for Plano Fire Engine 11 tonight who responded to my accident scene. Not only did they make sure I was okay, they were checking on my girl and making sure she was okay. Thank you
