The Westminster Fire Department participates in many community events to actively promote fire and life safety and to support charitable causes. Here's what's coming soon:
July 4 Fishing Derby -- Are you ready for some fishing? The Westminster Fire Department is! Families are invited out to City Park Lake, 5875 W. 104th Ave., from 8-11 a.m. on Saturday, July 4. This free family event is a great way to kick-off your Independence Day celebration, so grab the fishing poles, bait, lawn chairs and sunscreen and c’mon out! Kids 15 & under compete for prizes for biggest fish and first fish caught, there are goodies for all the kids, plus rides on the vintage fire truck and a BBQ lunch for the whole family. Call 303-658-4500 for more information.
Fireworks reminder -- Home fireworks are NOT permitted in Westminster except from midnight on July 3 to noon on July 5. There are no “safe” fireworks, but fireworks that are legal in the State of Colorado are allowed in Westminster during that time. Fountains and sparklers are permissible, but nothing that explodes or flies through the air (no cherry bombs or bottle rockets). Make sure and use permissible fireworks in an open area with nothing flammable nearby, and it’s wise to have a means of putting out a fire on hand. Watch kids closely and tell them the risks and rules before you start – most fireworks injuries are from sparklers! Westminster Fire Department responds to fires caused by fireworks every year. Fields, fences, decks -- even entire homes – have burned because of fireworks use. Be careful, follow the law, and be considerate of neighbors. Report use of illegal fireworks to the non-emergency police/fire number, 303-658-4360. To report a fire, call 911.
Every year fires start because of faulty products. One way to be safe is to stay apprised of recalls through the public notices by UL and the US Consumer Product Safety Commission.
