Fire Prevention

Smoke Alarms:
A working smoke alarm can increase your chance of survival in a fire by 50%! Change the battery in your Smoke alarms every six months during daylight savings time and test them once a month!  The Scottsbluff Fire Department will have fire trucks install smoke detectors for FREE with no cost to the city! 
House Numbers: 
We can’t help you if we can’t find you! When you call 911, you have an emergency and need help fast. The Scottsbluff Fire Department wants you to help fire fighters find your address quickly by installing large and/or reflective house numbers on doors, doorposts, mailboxes, or other locations on your house that can be seen from the road in both directions. Make sure that the numbers are not obstructed by branches, flowers or ornaments and can be seen clearly all year round. Emergencies happen any time day or night. Police, ambulance crews, and firefighters need to get to your home quickly to help you, your family, friends or guests quickly. It is important to do your part to help them find your home. See if you can find your house number from the street after dark and make adjustments if necessary. Clearly posted house numbers can make a difference in an emergency when seconds count. Response time is critical. We will get to the emergency as soon as we can and need to have you do your part by making sure your house numbers are large enough to be visible as the fire trucks are coming down or up your street.
