The BFA’s members are dedicated to providing the best service to the citizens of Bethlehem, working diligently to enhance our capability to provide fire protection, rescue, and medical response services. Fire safety awareness is becoming one of the most important public issues that is being addressed by fire departments all over. With increase in the incidents of fire accidents at homes being reported, it has now come to light that people do not have fire fighting equipments or alarm systems installed at home. Even if they have installed the systems, residents lack the required knowledge and training to use the system and maintain them. Therefore the fire departments have work cut out for them to educate, train and assist all residents to make their home safe from fire hazards. You can visit their website for more details regarding to ballistic fire barriers.

Firefighters days are always full of challenges, risks and attending to many more situations other than fire accidents and rescue. Fire fighters help out citizens in almost all emergencies including natural disasters, accidents and also help those who climb up on high-rise buildings and threaten to jump down. They keep their vehicles and equipments always in a state of readiness to be able to jump up and start immediately. Fire fighters wear fire protective clothing, which is insulated. This protects them from catching fire but then it also exposes them to very high amount of heat that can cause stress. The body heat as well as external heat gets trapped due to the insulation in clothing. This can cause stress and hence fire fighters have to always watch out for symptoms and seek medical help immediately.When your building or facility is equipped with fire door exits, you add a considerable level of protection against catastrophic damage to your structure. These exit barriers are at the very core of fire protection (which include walls, ceilings and floors as well). They are a part of building’s passive fire protection system – a requirement of all public buildings, offices, and factories. They interrupt smoke, toxic gasses, and flames from spreading from one area of your building to another. In other words, they create tiny compartments inside your building or facility, so that if fire has erupted in one compartment, the rest of the facility (and workers) can remain safe. What makes these barriers so important is that they address the issues caused by a normal barrier. Normal doors are a breach in fire protection. They are not self-closing nor contain the required latching device like ones designed for fire protection. Being self-closing is a vital component because, in reality, many doors are left open for the convenience of workers. While some believe that fire doors should not be held open, in reality they can be, so long as they are capable of automatically releasing once a building’s fire alarms sound off.

There is a rain date of July 14th. No pets or alcohol are permitted on the Fair Grounds Property. The Bethlehem Firefighters Association is not responsible for any stolen or damaged equipment
