Christmas trees account for hundreds of fires annually. Typically, shorts in electrical lights or open flames from candles, lighters or matches start tree fires. Well-watered trees are not a problem. A dry and neglected tree can be. This dramatic clip illustrates what happens when fire touches a dry tree and a properly maintained, well-watered tree (NIST video)

FILL THE FIRE BOOT FOR BURN SURVIVORS!!

Valparaiso Firefighters will be at 3 locations in Valparaiso on April 27th, 28th, and 29th trying to raise funds to send kids to Hoosier Burn Camp. It's a camp where kids with burn injuries can go have fun with other burn survivors for a week, free of charge to them or their families. So when you see us around with the boot, please help us fill it! 100% goes to HBC! Every cent counts.
