The Foley Fire Department recently acquired some new response equipment. A Ford F-150 Powerboost hybrid pickup has been outfitted and placed into service as the new command vehicle. This truck will be used by captains to respond to emergency incidents and will assist them in carrying out their many daily duties. We also acquired a new Polaris Ranger 1000 UTV to support operations at many of the special outdoor events like the Gulf Coast Hot Air Balloon Festival and the sporting events at Graham Creek Nature Preserve. We are appreciative of our City Council recognizing and supporting our equipment needs.
Outdoor Burn Ban
The Foley Fire Department reminds you that the annual Alabama Department of Environmental Management (ADEM) Burn Ban for Baldwin County goes into effect May 1 in an effort to improve air quality. Open burning of debris is prohibited until Nov. 1 with only a few exceptions (recreational, ceremonial, cooking fires and agricultural, silvicultural burns). These exceptions may also be restricted by the fire chief via a local burn ban when drought or weather conditions make it necessary.
As we enter the summer months, we remind you to prepare for hurricane season and other severe weather events. Please download a reliable weather app for your mobile devices or purchase a weather radio with local alerts. Contact our office at 251-943-1266 for more information on these items, and Turn Your Attention to Fire Prevention!
