Message from the Fire Chief
Hello Bear Island,On behalf of the Fire Brigade, i would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas as well as a happy and safe holidays! We are going to have one Fire Practice this month due to the holiday season, which will be Wednesday December 6th from 7:00PM-9:00PM. Fire Practices will be starting back up in January, 10th and 24th 7:00PM-9:00PM. We are always looking for volunteers, anyone over the age of 18. Hope to see you out there!
Fire Tip: Here are a few Holiday Safety Tips
- Don’t leave any lit candles unattended, maintain about a foot around the candle!
- Inspect your holiday string lights, using staples or nails increases the chances of damaged wiring!
- Don’t leave food that is cooking unattended, cooking is the top culprit for holiday fires!
