Maynard Fire to offer Home Safety Inspections

Maynard Fire Department

Press Release

            The Maynard Fire Department will begin conducting home safety inspections for those residents in Maynard who wish to have one. These inspections are designed to educate the resident on the dangers they face in their homes on a daily basis and some methods to reduce these hazards. The inspection will take about an hour and will involve Maynard Fire Department firefighters going through the home with the occupant to look for hazards. The inspection will start outdoors and look for street numbers making sure they are at least 4” high and of contrasting color so responders can see it from the street. If the occupant has a pool, some safety tips are available to ensure the safety of all occupants and children. The inspection then moves inside and looks at smoke and carbon monoxide detector operation and placement, electrical safety, slip trip and fall hazards among other items. The inspections are slated to begin in October to coincide with fire prevention month and will be conducted on Saturday’s. Inspections will be done on a first come first served basis and can be scheduled by emailing Administrative Assistant Nancy Brooks.

If you’d like to schedule an appointment, please give Nancy the date and time you’d like between 9:00 AM and 2:00 PM and she’ll schedule it. Please leave your contact information so we can confirm your appointment.
