Teach Kids Early about Not Playing With Matches!

School is still out for a number of kids, but parents can still teach them a valuable lesson about fire safety. Approximately 40% of fires caused by playing with matches are started by children under the age of 5. Take the time to teach young children the dangers of playing with matches and lighters. Many novelty lighters can appear toy-like and tempt younger kids into thinking they are safe to play with. The news video below shows how easily drawn to these items your preschooler or elementary age child can be. The sooner they are educated against playing with these items, the safer your family will be. 


SCAM ALERT - Beware of False "Firefighter Charity" Calls Minimize

Residents of Aptos and the surrounding area are being targeted by a phone scam operation.  Callers claim to be firefighters with the Aptos/La Selva Fire District, who are collecting money for a Burn Foundation (or other) charity cause.  We urge the public to NOT give any credit card information, bank numbers or other personal info to these callers.  They are not associated with the District in any way, and local law enforcement has been alerted to the issue.  These callers seem to be using rotating cell phone numbers with a local (831) area code, which disconnects immediately after calling.
