"The Miami Beach Fire Department is a diverse team of dedicated professionals whose mission is to provide our residents, businesses, and visitors with the highest level of service, safety and security through the delivery of fire suppression, emergency medical services, disaster preparedness, response and recovery, ocean rescue, fire prevention, public education programs and public safety communications."
The Westhampton Beach Fire Department protects the Village of Westhampton Beach, the Village of West Hampton Dunes, and the hamlets of Westhampton and Quiogue. Our year-round population is approximately 5000, while in the summer that number can more than double. Our District protects roughly eight miles of beachfront. This area includes large summer homes and condominiums.
We are pleased to offer an array of fire and life safety information to our community. Many of our safety pages include videos, infographics, downloadable checklists, and shareable social media images. Please browse and share these critical resources with your family, friends, and neighbors.
The Osage Beach Fire Protection District (OBFPD) provides fire suppression, first response medical, urban search and rescue, fire prevention inspections/permits, public fire education programs, emergency preparedness planning, fire cause and origin investigation and other services based on community needs.
Following guidance from the CDC and public health officials, and to comply with county-wide Stay Home legal orders, Point Reyes National Seashore's visitor centers are temporarily closed until further notice, and beach fire permits will not be issued and wood fires are prohibited until further notice. Charcoal fires are also prohibited until further notice. =Updates will be posted to our Current Conditions page and on the park's social media channels.
Permits are required for any wood fire ignited within the National Seashore. Permits are available at visitor centers. Permits may only be obtained on the day you plan on having a fire. The permit is free. Permits are not available or valid:
Reasonable amounts of driftwood may be gathered from ocean-facing beaches. The collection of driftwood for fires is prohibited along Tomales Bay. Driftwood should be dry and clean (i.e., no wood coated with creosote or other chemicals; no plywood or other materials with glue; no wood embedded with nails or other metal objects), and shouldn't be much larger or longer than your leg.
If you bring firewood from outside of the park, wait until you are in West Marin before purchasing the firewood to reduce the risk of spreading insect pests or diseases. Firewood can carry invasive insects and diseases that can kill native trees. New infestations of these insects and diseases can destroy our forests, lessen property values, and cost a great deal to monitor, manage and control.Learn more about the "Buy it where you burn it" principle below.
Of course, there is a large amount of water out in the ocean or in the bay adjacent to any of the beaches at which fires are permitted. But, given that it may not be safe to retrieve water from the ocean due to large surf, be sure to obtain and bring along plenty of water (potentially several gallons worth) before you arrive at the beach. There are water faucets at the base of the outdoor showers at Drakes, Limantour, and North beaches; however, there have been occasions during which water was unavailable due to pipeline breaks, pump failures, etc.
Before leaving your beach fire, put it out completely with water. Douse the fire with water, stir the coals, douse with water again. Repeat until the coals do not emit any heat; the coals should be cold enough to handle with your bare hands. Do not cover the coals with sand as it will only insulate any residual heat and be an unseen danger to wildlife and barefoot visitors.
Charcoal fires are allowed in the Bear Valley and Drakes Beach picnic areas in the grills provided. Visitors may also have charcoal fires in their own self-contained barbecue grills. Completely extinguish the briquettes and pack out the ash and charcoal. Visitors planning to cook food over barbecue briquettes should come prepared with an alternative means (i.e., self-contained gas stove) of cooking in the event of very high or extreme fire danger. Call 415-464-5100 x2 x1 or stop by the Bear Valley Visitor Center to learn what the day's fire danger level is.
Nationally, almost 9 out of 10 wildfires are caused by humans. These preventable wildfires threaten lives, property, and our precious natural resources. Whether you're a first-time visitor or a public land pro, you play a valuable role in preventing wildfires and protecting our natural resources. Please read and share these 10 Tips to Prevent Wildfires to help prevent wildfires and spread the word about #TeamPublicLands, the Department of the Interior's campaign to encourage responsible recreation.
Please be aware that our forests across the country are threatened by nonnative insects and diseases that can kill large numbers of trees. Sudden Oak Death, Goldspotted oak borer, pitch canker, Emerald ash borer, and Asian longhorned beetle can be transported long distances in firewood. Once transported into new areas, these insects and diseases can become established and kill local trees. You can help reduce the risk of spreading nonnative insects and diseases by:
When we say local firewood, we are referring to the closest convenient source of wood that you can find. As a very general guide: 80 kilometers (50 miles) is too far, and 16 kilometers (10 miles) or less is best. For Point Reyes National Seashore, please wait until you are in Inverness, Inverness Park, Olema, or Point Reyes Station before purchasing firewood.
The short answer to this is that most packaged heat-treated firewood with a USDA APHIS heat treatment seal, or a state based (such as a State Department of Agriculture) heat treatment seal is considered safe to move. Please note that just being labeled "kiln-dried" is quite different, and should not be considered safe to move. For more information, please visit the related blog post "Kiln Dried vs Heat Treated Firewood" on dontmovefirewood.org.

The Administration division's mission is to provide broad leadership in directing the organization's overall mission which is to protect life and property from fires and the threat thereof. The division is responsible for the management of the organization by focusing and investing resources in activities relating to planning, education of both the staff and the public, incident mitigation, and customer service.
The mission of the Operations' division is to help in the prevention of injuries and property damage from fire, accidents, hazardous materials spills/releases, and large-scale calamities.The division is responsible for evaluating equipment and methods to improve service delivery through interaction with fire equipment manufacturers and other fire departments around the nation. This is critical insofar as having adequate information and knowledge to identify equipment and procedures, which have the potential to save lives, minimize or prevent property losses, and/or increase safety. Another key responsibility of the division is the maintenance of equipment to operate at peak performance. This includes preventive maintenance as well as repair of firefighting equipment, annual apparatus testing against acceptable performance standards, and the annual hose-testing program.
Since its emergence in the early 60s, EMS has become an integral part of hundreds of fire departments in North America. In Pompano Beach, EMS has also been a key component of the fire department's daily activities since 1975. This service provides the residents and visitors of the city with comprehensive pre-hospital care 24 hrs per day, 365 days per year. Our department was one of the original [if not the first] fire departments to provide EMS in the state of Florida.The division provides health safety courses and advanced training for paramedics, as required by state statutes and regulations, as well as Quality Assurance programs mandated by state statute to measure the effectiveness of the delivery of service.

Start building a 3'x3'x2' hole in the sand and send the onlookers to scavenge for driftwood to feed the soon-to-be fire. Take loose sand from the hole and build a circular wall to block the wind. Stack your kindling and small sticks in a teepee structure and light your fire. Use lighter fluid if necessary and begin adding larger pieces of wood as they catch flame. Enjoy your warm fire with the sound of crashing waves as a backdrop. Keep an eye out for ghost crabs or unique shells along the shorebreak. 2b1af7f3a8
