Smoking and Fire Prevention

A vast majority of wildfires are caused by humans, with improperly disposed of cigarettes as a major contributing factor. The current abundance of fallen leaves and other natural fuels makes it even more important to be responsible with cigarette disposal. Improper disposal of cigarette butts is considered littering within our community rules with a $100 fine, and Public Safety does enforce this. Smoking is also a leading cause of home fire deaths. If you do smoke, please watch the short video below and review the safety tips in the following link to ensure you are doing so responsibly.

This can all also be viewed in the Public Safety News section of the Bent Tree website at the following link: Smoking and Fire Prevention

Well done, Bent Tree Community!

This past May the Bent Tree Foundation held a fundraising campaign to purchase lifesaving equipment for use by Bent Tree’s First Responders. Because of the generosity of our Bent Tree Community, we are delighted to report that sufficient funds were raised to purchase the following equipment:

·Thermal Imaging Cameras – four cameras plus the charging station – used to locate hidden sources of heat or fire as well as search and rescue situations at night

·Gas NiMH Detectors – two detectors – simultaneously measures four toxic gases

·Fire Hooks (Halligan tools) – 4 Halligans – prying tool used by fire departments across the country to execute forced entry in emergency situations

·Ladders and Rack – 3 ladders and one rack for our Brush Truck which is required by ISO to qualify as a utility vehicle

Over many years, Public Safety and the Bent Tree Fire Department have been of invaluable assistance to Bent Tree residents – from minor issues to critical life-threatening events. Purchasing this equipment is not only beneficial to our First Responders as they execute their duties. It also benefits all the residents of Bent Tree who find themselves in need of assistance. Additionally, this new equipment is a vital part of a major ongoing effort to improve our ISO rating from a “2” to a “1”.
One of the three missions of the Bent Tree Foundation is Community Enhancement. This fundraising campaign is an excellent example of the Foundation continuing to achieve its missions.
