Blue Light Safety
Please continue to watch for first responders utilizing personal vehicles responding to emergencies. Every second counts in an emergency and our first responders need your help. When you see a blue light for a firefighter or a green light for emergency medical personnel they are courtesy lights so we are asking for courtesy to safely pull off to the shoulder of the road to let them pass.
Safety Tips & Recommendations
The Warwick Fire Prevention Team requests that residents continuously check smoke and carbon monoxide detectors and follow fire safety tips which can be found on our Facebook site and from following the NFPA.org for more fire safety tips and family fire safety games from Sparky the Fire Dog.
Heating fires are the leading cause of seasonal fires in the winter months from Jan. through Feb. Keep space heaters at least three feet away from anything that can burn. Be home fire smart. Keep snow or any obstruction from your heating exhausts. Remember to check your furnace and fire places to ensure proper safety measures to keep them running correctly.
