Outdoor Burning

Little rain & high temps

brings EXTREME fire danger!

Pet Safety


It takes only minutes for a pet left in a vehicle on a warm day to succumb to heatstroke and suffocation. Most people don't realize how hot it can get in a parked car on a balmy day. However, on a 78 degree day, temperatures in a car parked in the shade can exceed 90 degrees -- and hit a scorching 160 degrees if parked in the sun!

Fire Escape Plan

Fire Escape Planning

Fire can spread rapidly through your home, leaving you as little as two minutes to escape safely once the alarm sounds. Pull together everyone in your household and make a plan. Walk through your home and inspect all possible exits and escape routes.  Households with children should consider drawing a floor plan of your home, marking two ways out of each room, including windows and doors.  To learn more, click here.

Address signs

Addressing Signs

In an emergency, seconds count – "We can't help you, if we can't find you."  For the past 20 years, the Bainbridge Fire Department has offered Island residents address signs for their homes, at no charge. These signs allow our responders to easily determine the correct location of an emergency scene. To obtain a blue address sign, visit us M-F 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM at Station 21, located at 8895 Madison Ave.  Learn more
