Keeping chimneys clean is the other key step in
fires. If you don't use your
fireplace very often, or you just moved,
you might not know whether your chimney is clean or not.
The following signs indicate a chimney in need of a cleaning:

On 11/14/13 Hammondsport Volunteers were alerted for mutual aid to assist bath with a structure fire. 2101 and Rescue 7 responded with 7 volunteers. Upon arrival members were put to work with overhaul due to the fire being mostly out. The members of the bath fire department made a good attack on the fire and were able to knock down the majority of it within a few minutes of arrival. Units were on scene a little over an hour assisting with overhaul and removal of debris so the fire investigators could find a cause for the fire.

This week is fire prevention week. Here are some tips to help you make your family safe and help out in case of a fire emergency. Step 1. Prepare and Plan AheadMake home fire safety the whole family’s responsibility. Work together, from the oldest to the youngest, to come up with an emergency escape plan in case of a fire or other emergency.Try to include at least two ways to escape from each room in your home (this is not always feasible, depending on your home). Map out your fire plan on paper and be sure it includes emergency phone numbers. Post a copy in each bedroom. Try to review the plan with the whole family once a month.Retractable ladders are a necessity for bedrooms on the second floor or higher. Everyone in your family needs to know how to climb out a window and down a ladder in case of an emergency. Be sure to show everyone how to crawl under smoke to escape during a fire and how to cover their mouths and noses with shirts or towels to keep from breathing in smoke. Designate one family member to assist younger children, elderly relatives or pets during an emergency.Decide on a meeting spot that is outside and away from the house. All family members living in your home should know the fire plan, including where to gather once they have evacuated the house.Be sure all children know what smoke and fire alarms sound like so they can recognize them during a fire. Teach your children the "Stop, Drop and Roll" technique for putting out a fire on their clothes or in their hair.Keep fire extinguishers in the kitchen, garage and basement and go over how to use them with your family. To operate a fire extinguisher, just remember P.A.S.S.: Pull the pin, Aim the nozzle, Squeeze the handle and Sweep from side-to-side as it sprays to extinguish the flames. Recharge all extinguishers after any test.Step 2. Install Smoke/Carbon Monoxide DetectorsInstall working smoke and carbon monoxide (CO) detectors in your home. This is probably the most important part of any home fire safety plan, as these devices are your first defense against a fire. Once they’re installed, remember to check the batteries twice a year and replace them as needed.Helpful Tips:
