Smoke Alarm Blitz - April 16


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.

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!

Career Day at Belton Elementary


Burn to Learn Demo at Belton Middle School



Belton firefighters took advantage of an annual career day event to drive home the point of how fire can turn into a tragedy in seconds.  Even more important was that we were able to show students how fast smoke alarms activate.  This simple, affordable life-saving tool is a must in every home.  Please call the fire department at 338-7048 to get more information on how you can protect your family and home.
