🚨10 QUICK FIREWORKS SAFETY TIPS!🚨

1. Always use fireworks outside and have a bucket of water/hose nearby in case of accidents.

2. Designate a safety perimeter.

3. Ditch faulty fireworks.

4. Supervise children when they are handling sparklers.

5. Don’t forget about your pets! Fireworks can be extremely stressful for pets. Keep your pets indoors.

6. Soak both spent and unused fireworks in water for a few hours before discarding.

7. Never place a part of your body directly over a firework or hold a firework in your hand when lighting.

8. Only light one firework at a time.

9. Avoid alcohol consumption when handling or using fireworks. This should be pretty self-explanatory.

10. Consider safe alternatives to fireworks such as party poppers, bubbles, silly string, or glow sticks.

Director and Chief Mike Rice spent time running evolutions with the recruit class yesterday. When it comes to leadership in the fire service, it’s important to stay connected to the front lines; to remind ourselves of why we choose to advance in our careers… to take care of the firefighters behind us. #leadfromthefront ...

VOTE YES ON ISSUE 6! HERE'S WHY:

- Issue 6 is NOT a tax increase! Eight years ago, our citizens voted "yes" on a proposal for a 1/4% (0.25%) income tax increase, the first tax increase in over 20+ years.

- The purpose was improve our preschool system and provide support to our Police and Fire departments (2016 ballot, Issue 9).

- Issue 6 is a renewal to continue the commitment our citizens made 8 years ago to help maintain our staffing levels, at a time where Dayton's emergency call volume is the highest it has EVER BEEN.

- A vote FOR the renewal of Issue 6 shows your commitment to our firefighters, EMT's, and Paramedics. When you call 911, our job is to show up to your worst day. We ask that our citizens show up for us and pass Issue 6!

Anyone want to inform us as to exactly what funds we are receiving from this levy and how it’s benefiting the fire department since it’s costing each us about $250 a year
