Success Stories:

 

“I feel the service provided is absolutely invaluable to home owners in Round Rock to prevent home fires, especially in the area of smoke detectors that are strategically placed through the home. Also, having a experienced fireman come into the home just to observe the conditions in the home and make suggestions on how to keep the home safe from fires. By providing this service I feel the Fire Safety Service would save the valuable resources of the Round Rock Fire Department”.  —Charles W., RR West

 

“We are very conscious about not only home safety but conscious energy-savers.  This survey helped us see where our efforts to ensure overall safety were done properly, and also how to do a better job in the years to come.  There were many helpful suggestions made that will remain with me, some of which are simple, but so important to know! For example, how to care for your kitchen fire extinguisher and how to know when you need a new one (before you need it in an emergency).  So valuable!    Thank you for this valuable service”   —Patricia E., Forrest Creek

 

“I can’t thank you enough for taking the time to come to my home to make it safer.  What a wonderful program this is, and it’s a great benefit to the whole community.   Having the additional smoke detectors installed and your advice about the type of fire extinguisher to buy was invaluable.”  —Pam G., RR West
