campaign with King County EMS to promote
Fall and Injury Prevention for Senior Citizens.
We are offering free home assessments to Senior Citizens who
live in the community independently. The assessment includes
recommended practices for reducing the risks of falls, and in some
cases, the installation of fall prevention devices such as grab
bars, shower chairs and more. If you or someone you know could
benefit from a home
assessment call the Fire Department at

FIRE DISTRICT 27 WISHES YOU A SAFE
It’s fun to decorate for the winter holidays, but holiday decorations can
increase your risk for a home fire. As you deck the halls this season, be fire
smart and keep your family safe
by following these safety tips:
decorations, or any other flammable items at least 3 ft away from open flame
and heat sources.
- If your household includes a natural tree
keep your tree away from fireplaces, and other heating sources. Be sure to keep
the stand filled with
water. Discard your tree when it is dry and begins dropping needles. A dry and
neglected tree is a fire hazard!
- Inspect for damage before use. Make sure extension cords are properly rated
for their intended use. Extension cords should never be strung together or
placed under rugs, carpets or furniture.
- never leave cooking equipment
unattended and turn off burners if you have to leave the room.
- Inspect for frayed wires,
bare spots, broken or cracked sockets and excessive wear, and throw out damaged
sets. Read the manufacturer’s instructions to learn the number of light strands
you can safely connect.

response times, training, fire prevention, code enforcement and communications. Protection classes range from 1-10, a 1
