FIRE DANGER IS NOW MODERATE FOR GRAND COUNTY -
It doesn't take long, seems like just yesterday we woke up to a foot of snow but that does not change the current increase in fire danger coupled with the extreme RED FLAG fire conditions today. Dry conditions mixed with low humidity and high winds clocking in at 50mph means that any small spark will exacerbate very quickly. Grasses will ignite with vigor and fire in timber will spread moderate to fast. Remember OPEN BURN SEASON is closed!! No slash pile burning allowed, and please - no campfires, residential "camp fire", or improper disposal of cigarette butts! Also please be mindful of sparks from operating equipment. Crews have already responded to multiple wildland fires in the County just this morning.

Smoke Alarms Save Lives

Nearly one-third of residential fires and two-fifths of residential fatalities occur in homes with no smoke alarms. Put another way, having a working smoke alarm in the home reduces your chances of dying in a fire by nearly half. Find more information on smoke alarms and fire safety on the CO Detectors page and from the U.S. Fire Administration at www.usfa.dhs.gov.

Carbon Monoxide Detector Offer For EGFP District Residents

East Grand Fire District has partnered with Fraser Valley Ace Hardware to purchase carbon monoxide detectors to be given to full-time residents of the Fire District. More information and the program application can be found on the CO Detectors page under Fire Prevention.

Kitchen Hood Replacement Program a Success!!

kitchen fire

kitchen fire burn damage

Over the last decade, our local restaurants were faced with the financial burden of updating their kitchen fire suppression systems to meet changing fire safety standards. East Grand Fire wanted to help lessen this costly expense for our local restaurants so thus created the Commercial Kitchen Safety Incentive Program. This provided up to a $500.00 grant to help the with required replacement of antiquated kitchen hood fire suppression systems in the East Grand Fire Protection District.

We are pleased to say that, to date, East Grand Fire was able to help 11 establishments with the required upgrade to their hood systems. The project is now being completed and East Grand Fire is very happy to have been able to be a part of this important life safety and property preservation enhancing project for our community.
