It’s Your Personal Choice

As members of the Roosevelt community, we all share the responsibility of keeping our town safe. The Roosevelt Fire Department is dedicated to protecting lives and property, but we believe that safety starts with individual choices. From preventing fires to preparing for emergencies, the choices you make every day can have a significant impact on your safety and that of your neighbors. Let’s explore how taking personal responsibility can make Roosevelt a safer place for all of us.

The Power of Prevention

Fire Safety at Home

Many household fires are preventable, and it starts with simple actions. Testing your smoke alarms monthly, keeping flammable materials away from heat sources, and never leaving cooking unattended are small choices that can prevent major disasters. We encourage every resident to take these steps seriously—it’s a choice that could save lives.

Emergency Preparedness

Disasters can strike with little warning, but being prepared is a choice that’s entirely in your hands. Creating an emergency kit, making a family evacuation plan, and staying informed about local hazards are key components of preparedness. These actions empower you and reduce the burden on emergency services, enabling us to focus on those in dire need during a crisis.

Making Informed Choices

In the age of information, making informed choices has never been easier—or more critical. We urge you to stay educated on the best practices for safety and emergency preparedness. Follow reputable sources, like the Roosevelt Fire Department and other local emergency services, for the most accurate and up-to-date information.

Community Education and Engagement

Part of making informed choices is actively participating in community education and engagement opportunities. Whether attending a fire safety workshop, joining a Community Emergency Response Team (CERT), or simply engaging with us during community events, your involvement makes a difference. It’s a personal choice to become a proactive member of our community’s safety network.

Supporting Each Other

Safety is a communal effort, and your choices can extend beyond your immediate surroundings. Checking on elderly neighbors, volunteering with local safety initiatives, or even spreading the word about fire safety and emergency preparedness can have a ripple effect. By choosing to support each other, we build a stronger, more resilient community.

The Impact of Your Choices

Every choice you make regarding safety and preparedness sends a message about the kind of community we want to be. A community that values safety, supports its members, and takes personal responsibility seriously is a community that thrives. Your choices contribute to this collective effort, making Roosevelt not just a place to live, but a safe and caring community to call home.


The Roosevelt Fire Department is here to serve and protect, but we believe that safety is a partnership with the community. The choices you make every day, from practicing fire safety to preparing for emergencies, play a crucial role in our shared safety. It’s your personal choice, but remember, when you choose safety, you choose it not just for yourself, but for all of Roosevelt. Together, let’s make those choices count.
