• Stay safe this summer!

  • Wear a helmet while biking, and skating. Especially at the skate park on Beach St. If Tony Hawk and Dave Mirra wear helmets, you should too.

    Wear protective gear on motorcycles. Every Firefighter and Paramedic has seen it save lives and reduce injury. Trust us, it’s worth it.

    Boat smart. Bring and wear life jackets. Tell someone on shore where you are going and when to expect you home.

    Grill safely. You should keep all grills OFF decks and porches, and away from your house. If you live in an apartment, IT’S THE LAW.

    The West Haven Fire Dept wants to wish you a fun, cool, and safe summer.
