Spring is in the air, even if there is still snow on the ground. With warmer weather on the way there will be more and more opportunities to gather outside and enjoy grilling meals. The spring and into the summer are peak months for grilling food. Let’s do our best to keep all grill masters and family and friends safe by following a few easy tips when it comes to grilling. Most grill fires start due to something combustible being too close to the grill. Before pulling out and firing up your grill this spring, please check the tubes and hoses underneath to assure they are connected and in good working order. Clean and remove any debris inside and around the outside of the grill. Never use a grill indoors, including garages and sheds, and never leave it unattended while in operation. Be safe and enjoy!
We had another high call volume response month in March that kept crews busy. In March I had the opportunity to present to our Roseville City Council; I always appreciate their time and the opportunity to present to this group. Video of the presentation can be viewed here:
I focused my messaging on a few topics impacting the Fire Department right now:
- High Call Volume and Sustainable Staffing
- Multi-Family Licensing Inspections and Fire Prevention Efforts
- The First Six Months of Providing Advanced Life Support (ALS) First Response.
