City of Decatur Fire Department

Fire PictureFire is comprised of three elements: fuel, oxygen, and heat. Oxygen is always readily available, almost everything is combustible thus making it fuel, and then, if you add the heat, you have a fire. Sounds easy doesn't it? Unfortunately, it is and that is why there is a fire in the United States approximately every sixteen seconds. Nationally, fire is the third leading cause of death. Fires do happen, but MOST of them can be prevented.

Mission of the Decatur Fire Department
