SANTA’S Coming to the Eureka Fire Prot. Dist.
As the holiday season approaches, it’s a good time to review fire safety techniques with your family including how to safely put out fires using a portable fire extinguisher. These extinguishers are a valuable resource for immediate use on small fires. Before you consider using an extinguisher there are some very important details to remember:
Should you need to use a fire extinguisher, follow the PASS method.
Learn more about fire safety and how to properly extinguish fires with FEMA’s preparedness activity module, Putting Out Fires.
There is something about the winter months and curling up
with a good book by the fireplace. But did you know that heating
equipment is a leading cause of home fire deaths? With a few simple safety tips and precautions you can prevent most heating fires from happening.
Heating Equipment Smarts
Install wood burning stoves following
manufacturer’s instructions or have a professional do the
installation. All fuel-burning equipment should be vented
to the outside to avoid carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning.
If you smell gas in your gas heater, do not light the
appliance. Leave the home immediately
and call your local fire department or gas company.

Flu season has begun! Are you protected? The flu is a contagious respiratory illness caused by various flu viruses that spread when people with flu cough, sneeze or talk. About 5 to 20 percent of people in the United States get influenza each year. Flu related complications include pneumonia and dehydration, which can last one to two weeks. In some cases, the flu can also lead to death.
If you get sick with flu symptoms, stay away from others as much as possible to keep from infecting them. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends staying home at least 24 hours after your fever is gone except to get medical care or necessities.
While vaccination remains the best line of defense against flu, there are simple everyday preventive actions you can take to help fight the spread of germs such as washing your hands frequently and covering your mouth when you cough or sneeze.
If you haven’t received your flu vaccination, use the vaccine finder to locate a clinic near you!

Dogs and cats are not immune to cold weather. If it is cold for you, it is cold for them! As the winter months approach, don’t forget to keep your pet safe. Create a pet disaster supply kit similar to the one you prepare for yourself. Their kit should include:
All pets need appropriate protection against the cold weather. If you have a short haired breed, consider getting a coat or sweater with a high collar or turtleneck for them to wear.
While outside, keep your pet close to you to avoid encountering antifreeze, a sweet but deadly poison that may be accessible on roads and in garages or driveways. Do you know the signs of antifreeze poisoning? Symptoms usually appear 30 minutes to an hour after ingestion and occur in two phases.
The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals lists guidelines to protect your animals when the mercury dips. Taking extra precautions during colder months will make sure your four-legged family members stay safe and warm
