Fire Prevention & Community Safety

A SPECIAL MESSAGE FOR HOME OWNERS OR GUARDIANS OF PEOPLE WITH SPECIAL NEEDS.  DURING AN EMERGENCY, MOST PEOPLE CALL THE FIRE DEPARTMENT TO THEIR HOME.  SOMETIMES THE DOOR IS LOCKED AND WE CANNOT GET IN WITHOUT DAMAGING YOUR DOOR.  

FOR YEARS, COMMERCIAL PROPERTY OWNERS HAVE INSTALLED A KEY SAFE BOX ON THE EXTERIOR OF THEIR BUILDINGS TO AVOID SUCH DAMAGES... NOW YOU CAN DO THAT AT YOUR HOME IN GRAPEVINE THROUGH THE FOLLOWING LINK. 

https://www.knoxhomebox.com/


THE FIRE DEPARTMENT HAS THE KEY TO OPEN THAT BOX AFTER INSTALLATION AND YOU CAN PUT YOUR KEY IN THE BOX FOR OUR EMERGENCY USE TO HELP YOU.  THIS IS YOUR CHOICE AND IS NOT A REQUIREMENT.  ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT THIS PROGRAM IN GRAPEVINE, PLEASE FEEL FREE TO CALL 817 410-4420.

NOTICE: Safety Tips to Be Ready.
 

When severe weather approaches or outdoor warnings sound, seek immediate shelter indoors.  Should a tornado approach, go to the heaviest structured room without windows in your home or business.  Most times this is a restroom or a closet.  Monitor your local radio or TV news.  Plan ahead and know your safe place. 

Cooking is the leading cause of building fires in Grapevine. When you cook, do not leave cooking unattended.  Set a minute timer to peridically check your cooking for 10-15 minute intervals.  Always ensure your fire or heat is off if you have to leave.  We recommend you procure a stove top fire suppression device for residential use.  You can find these online under various names.   

Working smoke alarms are required in all new homes and older homes should have them installed.  Besides fire sprinklers, smoke alarms offer one of the best chances to escape a fire in you home.  Plan now, test it monthly, replace any batteries when the time changes.  

Be Ready.
