|Fire Prevention Tips|
“Look. Listen. Learn. Be aware – fire can happen anywhere.”
Look for places fire can start
Listen for the sound of the smoke alarm
Learn two ways out of each room
The National Fire Prevention Association wants you to pay attention to your surroundings, look for available exits, and take the smoke alarm seriously if it sounds. This can make the difference between life and death in a fire or emergency.
TEACH CHILDREN ALL EXITS OUT OF THE HOME,
HOW TO RESPOND SHOULD THE SMOKE ALARMS ACTIVATE, AND
CREATE A SAFE FAMILY MEETING PLACE OUTSIDE THE HOUSE.
PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
Dial 9-1-1 for ALL requests for fire department assistance or ambulance
even if you don't think it's a technically an "emergency."
Each and every FIRE and EMS request must be properly documented and dispatched by our 911 operators - who are ALWAYS there to answer your call. The Winchendon Fire Department is a very busy fire department. There will be times when no one can answer the business lines because we are out on calls. Our non-emergency numbers are for regular station business only, not dispatching.
It is the goal of the Winchendon fire department to provide each and every Winchendon resident the quickest and most efficient response possible. Thank you for your cooperation.
