Fire investigation is another important function of the Fire Prevention Division.

Burn Prevention Tip: Loose Clothing: Tuck in all clothing around any open flame. The flames from a grill, fireplace or campfire will ignite loose clothing instantly.

Surviving a Fire: When escaping a fire, test the doorknob and spaces around the door with the back of your hand. If it's cool, slowly open the door and look for signs of smoke or fire. If you encounter smoke, heat or flames, try another escape route.
