Fire Prevention Week 2015

October 4-10, 2015 is Fire Prevention Week! This year’s theme is: “Hear the Beep Where You Sleep. Every bedroom needs a working smoke alarm!”

This message encourages you to install smoke alarms in every bedroom, outside each separate sleeping area, and on every level of your home, including the basement. According to the U.S. Fire Administration (USFA), half of home fire deaths result from fires reported between 11 p.m. and 7 a.m. when most people are asleep.

Smoke alarms save lives! If there is a fire in your home, a working smoke alarm will give you a chance to quickly escape. Learn how to properly install and maintain smoke alarms in your home  by visiting the National Fire Protection Association’s (NFPA) “Smoke Alarm Central.”

Fire safety is something everyone can practice. The NFPA has interactive games and activities to make Fire Prevention Week fun for the entire family. Test your fire safety knowledge with the NPFA Fire Quiz. Kids can also learn how to stay safe with puzzles and videos featuring “Sparky the Fire Dog.”

Download the Fire Prevention Week infographic to share important fire safety tips with family and friends.

This year, USFA is dedicating the month of October to providing fire safety tips using hashtag #firesafein31. USFA will share daily tips to help make homes and families safer. Follow #firesafein31 on Twitter at @usfire and on Facebook at

Open Burning

smokey.jpgDuring the spring and summer months in the St. Louis Area, we have many days of high temperatures, strong winds, and low humidity. These factors and intermittent rainfall can lead to dangerous grass and brush fires.

Per Missouri Department of Natural Resources Regulations-

St. Louis Metropolitan Area: Open burning of trees, tree leaves or brush is allowed only in areas outside of incorporated municipalities from Sept. 16 to April 14 of each calendar year.  These brush piles are limited to a base of 16 square feet and the burning is allowed from 10 a.m. through 4 p.m..

We always ask that Eureka Fire Protection District residents contact Engine House 1 at 636-938-5505 before burning so we may know about it first. Eureka Fire Protection District does not issue burn or bonfire permits, but we may advise you not to burn at any particular time due to conditions.

For more information, you can download a hotsheet with safety tips and state and local regulatory rules on open burning.


For Your Health Durning a Disaster

If you need medical assistance during a disaster, paramedics and other professional responders may not be immediately available, and hospitals and clinics may not be accessible. That’s why it’s important to keep medical records, supplies and prescriptions easily accessible and to learn simple first aid techniques. Creating a “stay healthy” kit will help you to manage minor medical needs until help arrives. Your kit should include:

  • A list of prescription medications, medical conditions, and copies of medical insurance documentation;
  • First aid supplies, such as bandages, aspirin, and antiseptic cream; and
  • A week’s supply of medicines in a plastic bag labeled with each family member’s name.

If your medicine requires refrigeration and the power goes out, most medicines can be kept in a closed refrigerator for several hours and still be safe to use. Be sure to contact your doctor or pharmacist if you have questions about your medication.

As with other hazards, there are specific steps that you can take before and during an influenza pandemic to protect yourself and your loved ones. For example, simple preventive measures, such as using alcohol-based hand sanitizer, can help protect you from germs and prevent you from spreading them to others.
