Prevent a fire from starting/Prevenga un incendio.
Belmar Mayor Matthew Doherty today released Fire Safety information for homeowners and renters as part of a month long public service announcement campaign to raise awareness among Belmar residents on the very real dangers of winter fires.
The following prevention guides, available in both English and Spanish, focus on use of candles, medical oxygen and smoking. If you smoke in your home, you are at higher risk to have a fire. Fire prevention professionals remind you that if you must smoke, only do so when alert. Never smoke in bed. Talk to everyone in your home about staying safe. Make sure everyone in your home knows what to do if there is a fire.
Mayor Doherty encourages Belmar residents to take time to review the public safety announcements that can be found on the borough’s website www.Belmar.comunder Belmar Alerts, as well as on facebook and Twitter in both English and Spanish.
