A couple quick tips mentioned during the presentation were:
Know your different types of fires and how to put them out. For example, it is important to know that pouring water on a grease fire will likely make the fire worse. A recommended solution is to spread baking soda over the fire and try to smother it.
Have fire extinguishers readily available in case of a fire emergency and also have an evacuation route and meeting spot in place.
SERVPRO of Cheshire County appreciates all that the Westmoreland Fire Department does!
