Indoor Lightning Safety

  • Stay off of corded phones, computers, and other electrical equipment that put you in direct contact with electricity

Wildfire Prevention Tips for Bemidji?

White lightning is shown striking against a dark sky. We respond to storm damage emergencies 24-hours a day in Beltrami County.

SERVPRO® of Bemidji, Grand Rapids & Hibbing responds to storm damage emergencies 24-hours a day. Lightning strikes and humans both can cause wildfires. Here are some tips from the American Red Cross to prevent wildfires:

Prevention is critical as people cause 85 percent of wildfires by burning debris, using equipment improperly, discarding cigarettes carelessly, leaving campfires unattended, and arson.

  • Don’t drive your vehicle onto dry grass or brush. Hot components under your vehicle can spark fires.
  • Use equipment responsibly. Lawnmowers, chain saws, tractors, and trimmers can all spark a wildfire.
  • Use caution any time you use fire. Dispose of charcoal briquettes and fireplace ashes properly, never leave any outdoor fire unattended and make sure that outdoor fires are fully extinguished before leaving the area.
  • If residential debris burning is allowed – use caution! After obtaining any necessary permits, ensure that burning is not currently restricted in your area.
  • Store combustible or flammable materials in approved safety containers away from the house
  • Keep the gas grill and propane tank at least 15 feet away from any structure
  • Do not use the grill during potentially dangerous fire weather conditions. Always have a fire extinguisher or hose nearby.

Microwave Fires Happen

SERVPRO® of Bemidji, Grand Rapids & Hibbing respond to fire damage emergencies often in the Bemidji area, and in many instances, these fires might have been prevented. Here are some microwave safety tips from the National Fire Protection Association to prevent possible microwave fires:

  • PURCHASE a microwave oven that is listed by a qualified testing laboratory
  • MAKE sure to complete and return the product registration card. This way the manufacturer can reach you if there is a recall on the product.
  • PLUG the microwave oven directly into the wall outlet — never use an extension cord
  • MAKE sure the microwave oven is at a safe height, within easy reach of all users
  • OPEN food slowly, away from the face
  • FOOD heats unevenly in microwave ovens. Stir and test before eating or giving to children.
  • NEVER heat a baby bottle in the microwave. Since a microwave oven heats unevenly, it can create hot pockets, leading to burns.

If you have a fire in the microwave, leave the door closed, turn off the oven and unplug it from the wall. If the fire does not go out, get outside and call the fire department.
