Holiday Cooking

Cooking safety tips:

Stay in the kitchen when you are cooking.
Make your cooking area safeMove things that can burn away from the stove. Turn pot handles toward the back so they can't be bumped.
Be prepared. Keep a large pan lid or baking sheet handy in case you need to smother a pan fire. 
Prevent burns. Wear short sleeves when you cook, or roll them up. Don't lean over the burner. Use potholders and oven mitts to handle hot cookware.
Station 23 staffing update

In February, voters approved a levy increase designed to improve fire and emergency services to our community. The Bainbridge Island Fire Department is taking steps towards the implementation of this service improvement, which will lead to the full-time staffing of Station 23 on Phelps Road in 2016. At a Badging Ceremony on November 11th, seven members were acknowledged. Read more.

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.  Learn more 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

CPR training

CPR Training

The Department offers monthly CPR/AED training at our Phelps Road station. These classes are offered at no cost to members of our community. Businesses may also sign up for CPR classes. AHA certified Heartsaver/First Aid classes are also available. Learn more about our CPR/AED classes.

Emergency Kits

Emergency Preparedness Kits

Try to assemble your kit well in advance of an emergency. You may have to evacuate at a moment's notice and take essentials with you. You will probably not have time to search for the supplies you need or shop for them. Learn more!
