Welcome to Upper Hominy Volunteer Fire & Rescue Department
The Upper Hominy Volunteer Fire and Rescue Department Incorporated is dedicated to life safety, incident stabilization and property conservation. We provide fire suppression, prevention and control to the Upper Hominy and Beaverdam communities and through mutual aid to the surrounding communities. We also provide rescue and emergency medical services to the best of our ability to our communities. We also provide fellowship for our members through meetings and training sessions. We make every effort to maintain up-to-date training methods and practices. We respond to all cries for help in the Upper Hominy Fire District as well as surrounding communities no matter how large or small.
Carbon monoxide detectors (CO) should be installed in a central location outside each bedroom and on every level of the home. Safety tips for carbon monoxide detectors mirror those of smoke alarms. Change the batteries, test the unit and interconnect them, if possible.
Keep combustible materials such as newspapers, furniture or clothes at least 3 feet (36 inches) away from portable heaters.
Never place portable heaters at the bottom of the stairway. This will block the escape route in the event of a fire.
For portable electric heaters, check cords for cracks, breaks or loose connections. Never overload electrical sockets or use power strips!
