FIRE SAFETY TIPS

Smoke Alarms:

Properly installed and maintained smoke alarms provide a critical warning alarm that could save you and your loved ones by providing the chance to escape. If you need help choosing or installing fire alarms, contact your local Fire Station for assistance.

Please Don’t Burn:

It’s not only a fire hazard, it contributes to air pollution by adding chemicals such as hydrocarbons or carbon monoxide, causing health hazards for those with asthma or lung problems. Burning leaves means watching perfectly good natural nutrients go up in smoke. Compost, mulch or shred leaves and grass, and grind branches. Never burn plastic, rubbish or construction material. If you feel burning is your only option, carefully read the following policies before starting any fire on your property:

Tinicum Township Open Burning Policy
Dept of Environmental Protection Burning Policy

Reflective Numbers:

When an emergency responder has difficulty locating an address, they lose valuable time. Minutes can mean the difference between life and death for a family member or the complete loss of your home or barn to fire. Make sure you have properly sized reflective street numbers on your house or business. The numbers must be placed at a conspicuous location at the end of your driveway. The Dept. of Public Works can provide a compliant, reflective sign for a small fee of $10.00. If you have any questions, please contact us at 610-294-9154 or email Doug Skelton, Public Works Director, at moverbeck@tinicumbucks.org

Emergency Evacuation Assistance – Special Needs Registry:

The Special Needs Registry is a free, voluntary and strictly confidential program designed to help those who would have difficulty during an evacuation due to physical or cognitive limitations, language barriers, or lack of transportation. The Special Needs Registry has now been combined with ReadyBucks, the alert system powered by Everbridge. Simply sign-up, select your alerts, and on the information page, check any Special Needs you may have or additional assistance you may need. After completing sign-up, not only will emergency personnel be able to serve you better by having your information at their fingertips, but will also be able to check your status based on the alerts they send out. Individuals or their caregivers can resister online at www.member.everbridge.net.

Confirm Your Municipality with Alarm Companies:

Bucks County 9-1-1 advises all alarm system subscribers to contact their respective alarm companies and have them record your specific municipality. This will prevent any unnecessary delays in emergency response.
