Prevention and Education

Believe in Fire Safety

We are teaming up with the Oregon State Fire Marshals Office (OSFM) and BigFoot to bring fire safety messages to all Oregonians.

OSFM has created a "Virtual Classroom". This is a PDF that you must download then it will provide you with links to other very important information about outdoor fire safety.

Virtual Team Teaching Video

Mid-Columbia Fire and Rescue recently worked with the Mid-Columbia Fire Prevention Co-Op to produce a Virtual Team Teaching Video. The video can be found here: YouTube

Cooking Safety

Keep and eye on what you fry. Keep a lid nearby when you are cooking and if a fire starts, put a lid on it. Cover the pan, turn off the heat and let the fire self-extinguish. NEVER move the pan and never put water or anything else in the pan to extinguish the fire.
