Belton Fire Department members will be going door-to-door on Saturday April 16th to install free smoke alarms in homes that need them. This is sponsored by the American Red Cross in a new Home Fire Campaign that is meant to improve fire safety and awareness within the community and reduce injuries and fatalities during structural fires.
Here is a list of streets we will be visiting:
Smythe, Rice, Cox, Blake, McGee, Stringer, Geer, and Lewis. If you don't live on these streets, please call us at 338-7048 to schedule an appointment for us to come to your house.

Worked on NFPA 1410 Engine Company evolutions last night with our dedicated staff. Also throwing ladders to evaluate roof construction on one of our schools
With 4 member crew - 2 initial and then 2 more after one minute (staggered for real-world POV arrival)
-Lay 300ft supply (LDH)
-200ft 1.75" at 150gpm
-200ft 2.5" at 265gpm (1 1/8")
-Establish water supply
-3 minute benchmark (NFPA)
Crews did jam up! We may not have reached our 3 minute benchmark, but it was smooth and efficient with limited staffing. Great drill night!
