This equipment has to be replaced every 10 years due to the NFPA guidelines. On average we have 40 volunteers donating their time to be firefighters. The image below shows the cost of equipment we must update every 10 years for each volunteer. HELMET $275 NOMEX HOOD $50 Home Smoke Alarms The introduction and widespread adoption of residential smoke alarms over the past four decades has been tremendously successful in saving countless lives by providing early warning for home occupants to potentially life threatening fires. Smoke alarms have been developed to be reliable in general and economical to employ, requiring occasional maintenance via testing and battery replacement. Nevertheless, there remain some shortfalls in operation. Nuisance or false alarms, which are triggered by nonfirerelated sources, accout for the majority of smoke alarm activations. Additionally, construction methods and home furnishing materials have changed over the years, dramatically increasing the fire growth rate and reducing the time for save egress. Rousing sleeping occupants in a timely manner can also be challenging, especially for children and the elderly. Given these concerns, residential smoke alarms have a huge impact upon residential fire safety by reducing the number of injuries and deaths. Fire is FAST! SELF CONTAINED BREATHING APPARATUS $6,200 RADIO $4000 TURNOUT GEAR $2,400 GLOVES $75 THERMAL IMAGING CAMERA $8000 TOOL $250 FLASHLIGHT $300 BOOTS $250 TOTAL= $21,800 There is little time! In less than 30 seconds a small flame can get completely out of control and turn into a major fire. It only takes minutes for thick black smoke to fill a house. In minutes, a house can be engulfed in flames. If you wake up to a fire, you won’t have time to grab valuables because fire spreads to quickly and the smoke is too thick. There is only time to escape. Fire is DARK! Fire isn’t bright, its pitch black. Fire isn’t bright, but quickly produces black smoke and complete darkness. If you wake up to a fire you may be blinded, disoriented and unable to find your way around the home you’ve lived in for years. Fire is HOT! Heat is more threating than flames. A fire’s heat alone can kill. Room temperatures in a fire can be 100 degrees at floor level and rise to 600 at eye level. Inhaling this super-hot air will scorch your lungs. This heat can melt clothes to your skin. In five minutes a room can get so hot that everything in it ignites at once: this is called flashover. Fire is DEADLY! Did You Know? The approximate weight of the equipment a firefighter wears is 54 lbs. Thank you to these sponsors for supporting and sponsoring this section! Smoke and toxic gases kill more people than flames do. Fire uses up the oxygen you need and produces smoke and poisonous gases that kill. Breathing even small amounts of smoke and toxic gases can make you drowsy, disoriented and short of breath. The odorless, colorless fumes can lull you into a deep sleep before the flames reach your door. You may not wake up in time to escape. bp THANK YOU FIREFIGHTERS FOR KEEPING OUR COMMUNITY SAFE!
