Once again, the BMFPD Auxiliary and BMFPD volunteer Firefighters are working together to help our neighbors update their fire safety equipment and learn how to operate it.

• Bring your current fire extinguishers to the sale – we’ll test them, and if they need to be replaced, we’ll dispose of them safely at no cost to you.

• Put out a live fire under the supervision of volunteer firefighters. Be sure EVERYONE in your household knows how to operate this basic home safety equipment.

• State and county codes require CO detectors - BMFPD’s own Medical Safety Officer Nina Griffin tells you why. We’ll throw in a FREE 10 year battery with your purchase.

• Visit the Third Arm's Pet Evacuation Team (P.E.T.) table and learn how to plan your pet's evacuation, with or without you.

• Beyond the Go Bag - Visit the Preparedness table and get a prep list customized to your home.

BE FIRE SAFE!

BMFPD Chief John Benson selected fire extinguishers, and CO and fire detectors for reliability and ease of use. Our friends at McGuckin Hardware gave us great group-buy pricing so BMFPD residents can update their gear conveniently, and save city Sales Tax. A small markup benefits the BMFPD volunteer fire department.

 


 

UPDATE YOUR FIRE EXTINGUISHERS!

Extinguishers go dry after a few years – how old are the ones in your home?

Chief Benson has selected two compact chemical fire extinguishers that are easy to use anywhere in the home, on any type fire.

Check out the Amerex non-chemical water can fire extinguisher, like the ones the department carries on its engines.

 


 

BRING YOUR EXTINGUISHERS TO BE CHECKED

If they need to be replaced, we’ll recycle your old ones free of charge.

 


 

UPDATE YOUR SMOKE DETECTORS

The sensors in detectors fail over time. Pick up a new smoke detector with a 10 year warranty and a 10 year battery – or pick up a couple. Current Boulder County code calls for detectors IN every bedroom and on every level!

 


 

ADD A CO DETECTOR

Current Colo. law calls for CO detectors in homes using propane or natural gas, OR with attached garages. Get a simple plug-in model with a digital display and a 7-year warranty PLUS we’ll give you 10-year battery.

 


 

ILLUMINATE YOUR HOME ADDRESS

Chief Benson says, “ If we can’t find you, we can’t help you.” Firefighters can see a house fire, but they can’t see a medical emergency call. If your reflective house numbers have disappeared over the years, get a new kit.

Be sure your sign can be read by a responder coming or going past your home. We have customized stakes to fit with the house number kit. "Mount it right or be out of sight."
