Fire Prevention & Safety Tips
Fire Prevention

Practice fire safety around your home, neighborhood and at work. It is important to talk to your children about fire safety in the home. Below is a safety list all home owners should follow:

  • Check batteries in smoke alarms
  • Clean out drier vents
  • Clean out chimneys and pipes
  • Make sure flue works properly
  • Cleanup your yard before winter
  • Get burning permits for yard waste
  • Practice your escape plan
Fire Safety

Fireplaces: open the damper before lighting the fire; the trap should be cleaned once a year

Fire Extinguishers: all residents should have an ABC Fire Extinguisher in their home and garage

Candles: be cautious when you burn them; never leave burning candles unattended

Paper: do not burn gift wrapping in your fireplace

Adopt a Hydrant

We ask that you assist us in fire protection by adopting a hydrant near your home or business and ensure that it is clear of any snow, debris or obstructions that could hamper our firefighters ability to quickly hook-up and get water. Especially during the winter, it is not uncommon for hydrants to have snow build up around the hydrants. So, please do us a favor and keep them clean. If you see any issues with hydrants, please contact the Village of Kronenwetter.
