Harlan Fire Department has a busy year
We would like to recruit nine new members for 2016. If you are interested in making a difference in your community, consider volunteering as a firefighter. -- Harlan Fire Chief Roger Bissen

    HARLAN – The weather outside may be frightful this winter, but a fire in your home is far from delightful. Unfortunately, the risk of home fire does increase during the winter months: December, January, February and March are the leading months for U.S. home fires.
    To help better educate the public about winter fire hazards and ways to prevent them, the Harlan Fire Department is teaming up with the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and the United States Fire Administration (USFA) to promote “put a freeze on winter fires.”
    The annual campaign, now in its fifth year, addresses the leading factors that collectively contribute to a higher risk of home fires and related hazards during the winter months. These include heating, holiday decorating, Christmas trees, candles, electrical issues and carbon monoxide poisoning.
