Community Urged to Stay Safe

Monday, November 23, 2015
With more than 100 crews working around the clock, power is coming back on across the Spokane region. However, the forecast of snow, colder temperatures and wind over the next few days means those inside their homes and without electricity need to remain vigilant in protecting against carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning and hypothermia. 

Open flames and alternate heat sources are still threats for CO poisoning and house fires, so individuals should only use safe methods to remain warm (fireplaces, multiple clothing layers). Generators should never be located inside a garage, carport or home. There is also the chance of frozen pipes so keep a running stream of cold water and cabinet doors open to encourage heat flow. 

A 24-hour Red Cross shelter at The Valley Assembly of God, 15618 E. Broadway remains open and offers meals, showers, electricity and a warm place to sleep for all ages. SVFD paramedics are assisting medically-vulnerable individuals at this location. Pets may also be accepted. Other resources are available by calling 2-1-1.   

Home Safety Tips for Cold Weather

With power still out in neighborhoods across the greater Spokane Valley, residents are urged to take precautionary steps to prevent carbon monoxide poisoning, house fires, hypothermia and frozen pipes.

Power Outage Safety Tips

Thursday, November 19, 2015

As our region recovers from the devastating windstorm, we urge citizens to take precautions to stay safe:

  • Check on your neighbors
  • Place generators outside your home and garage away from windows and doors - never inside. Generators produce carbon monoxide which can be deadly. 
  • Ensure that your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors have fresh batteries and are working correctly
  • Do not use candles. Use flashlights instead. 
  • Place barbeque grills outside your home and garage - never inside
  • Use camping stoves for cooking inside with caution, in a well-ventilated area. Never use as a heat source.
  • Follow general safety precautions when using a fireplace or wood stove to heat your home. Never leave on when your home is unoccupied.

The Red Cross has set up a warming shelter for Valley residents at the Valley Assembly of God, 15618 E. Broadway. Medically vulnerable residents may seek shelter in the Red Cross facility at 1404 N. Ash St (Girl Scouts offices). Call 2-1-1 for information about additional community resources.

Burn Restrictions Lifted

Friday, October 23, 2015

Outdoor recreational fires, including campfires, are now allowed in the City of Spokane Valley, Liberty Lake, Millwood and all unincorporated areas of Spokane County. Citizens may also use backyard barbeques, chimineas, portable outdoor fireplaces, fire pits and other patio/deck warmers, as long as approved fuel is used and other requirements are satisfied. Outdoor burning for disposal purposes is illegal in the SVFD service area at all times.
