The fire department offers a home safety survey to identify potential hazards in the home. This allows the occupant to be aware of and take the necessary corrective measures. The survey can be completed in less than one hour, is voluntary on the resident’s part and is offered by the fire department free of charge. Please contact the fire department to schedule a safety survey.
