Keep away from power lines. Stay at least 35 feet away from fallen power lines and anything they are touching. Call 911 and let them know.

Avoid electrical shock in flood areas. Don’t go into flooded areas or use any electrical equipment or electronics that may have been submerged. Have a qualified electrical inspector check the electrical system.

When in doubt, throw it out. If food is 40 degrees Fahrenheit or warmer, especially dairy and meat, throw it out. Ask your provider about using refrigerated medicines.

A picture of the South Adams Fire Department logo is shown. Adams County.

SERVPRO® of Commerce City responds to fire damage emergencies throughout the year, and we often arrive onsite as the South Adams Fire Department is leaving the scene. The Insurance Service Office (ISO) recently awarded them with a prestigious Class 2/2x rating, a significant improvement from the previous Class 6/9 rating. There are only 1,243 United States Fire Departments with a 2/2x rating out of 49,000 fire departments in the country!

Their website notes that this new rating may lower insurance premiums for some residents.  It is important to check with your insurance company to see if the new rating will translate to lower premiums.

The ISO rating is based on three components:

  1. The community’s emergency communications capabilities, including 911 telephone systems, adequacy of telephone lines, operator supervision and staffing, and dispatching systems.
  2. The quality of the fire department, including adequacy of equipment, sufficiency of staffing, level of training and the geographic distribution of fire companies.
  3. The water system supply in that particular region.

Additional benefits to the Fire Department include using the grading criteria to help in planning for training, equipment and the need for future stations and personnel to ensure we maintain our current high level of service

Microwave Fire in Henderson?

8/30/2021 (Permalink)

A microwave oven is shown in a kitchen. Don’t get fried by your microwave oven in Adams County!

Microwave Safety Tips for Henderson

According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), if you have a fire in a microwave, leave the door closed, turn off the oven and unplug it from the wall. If the fire does not go out, get outside and call the fire department.  SERVPRO® of Commerce City sees all kinds of fire damage each year and offer these microwave safety tips from the NFPA:

Microwave Safety Tips

  • PURCHASE a microwave oven that is listed by a qualified testing laboratory. Make sure to complete and return the product registration card. This way the manufacturer can reach you if there is a recall on the product.
  • PLUG the microwave oven directly into the wall outlet — never use an extension cord.
  • MAKE sure the microwave oven is at a safe height, within easy reach of all users.
  • OPEN food slowly, away from the face. Hot steam or the food itself can cause burns.
  • FOOD heats unevenly in microwave ovens. Stir and test before eating or giving to children.
  • NEVER heat a baby bottle in the microwave. Since a microwave oven heats unevenly, it can create hot pockets, leading to burns. Warm a bottle in a bowl of warm — not hot or boiling — water, or by running it under the tap.
