Eastern Knox County Joint Fire District Reminds You to be Safe


As we enter this heating and holiday season, please remember the following.

Always check your smoke detectors, and practice fire safety drills in the home. (We have smoke detectors at both stations if you need one)

Have your heating sources (furnace, wood burning sources should have chimney cleaned) checked by a professional.

Use seasoned fire wood not green.

Keep alternate heat sources away from combustibles.

If you notice you have a headache or nauseous, please call us to check your Carbon Monoxide.

If you have a real Christmas tree, keep it watered.

Do not overload electrical outlets with lights.

In in-climate weather, please plan ahead, give yourself extra time to get where your going and space between you and the car in front of you. Drive safely!

Always check on your neighbors.

As always, stay safe!
