Fire Safety Tips for Fourth of July Celebrations in Kailua?

6/27/2022 (Permalink)

Fireworks for the shape of giant palm trees in the sky. We are trusted leaders in fire damage restoration services in Honolulu County.

Aloha! Our local team in Kailua wishes everyone a safe and sane 4th of July holiday. The Honolulu Fire Department sells firecracker permits with valid identification, but all other forms of fireworks are illegal on Oahu. Here are some safe alternatives to using fireworks from the National Fire Protection Association:

  • Use glow sticks as a safe alternative to sparklers. They are fun for all ages.
  • Loud and proud. Noisemakers are sure to make a statement. They can be found at local party supply stores or make your own.
  • Have an outdoor movie night. Set up a screen and projector. Don’t forget the bug spray!
  • Red, white, and blue silly string
  • Make a patriotic craft with the family
  • Throw a birthday party for the USA and don’t forget the cake!

Do-it-yourself Noisemakers

  • Clean and dry empty water bottles and fill them with coins, marbles, or beads. Twist the caps back on tightly or glue them shut. Decorate the bottles with glued-on streamers, glitter, or paint.

Second Option

  • Take two clear plastic cups and fill the first cup with dried beans, popcorn, coins, buttons, small bells, beads, rice, etc. Put the second cup on top of the filled cup with both lids touching, and tape the two cups together. Shake and have fun!

Heavy rain obscures the view of cars driving on the highway. We respond to storm damage emergencies 24-hours a day in Honolulu County.

Aloha! Our team in Kailua wants everyone to be safe in a flooding situation. The City and County of Honolulu website offer this information on what you can do to prepare for a flood:

Know your flood risk. Your home or business may be subject to flooding from even light rainfall, high tides, upstream debris or development, high surf, storms, hurricanes, tsunamis, dam failure, sea level rise, coastal erosion, or some combination of these hazards. Be aware of streams, drainage channels, roads, culverts, and other areas known to flood around your home or business.

Keep important documents in a waterproof container.

Prepare your home. Store valuables in higher places. Declutter drains and gutters. Consider more permanent measures to protect your home, such as wet/dry flood proofing and rain gardens.

Gather emergency supplies in case you need to evacuate prior to flooding or if roads are flooded, and you are trapped in your home.

Plan how you will leave and where you will go if you are advised to evacuate.

Check the weather forecast and flood alerts before hiking or outdoor activities. Hikers on Oahu have required rescues and have died from flash floods and landslides.

Cooking Oil Kitchen Fire in Kahuku?

6/7/2022 (Permalink)

Flames rise in the air while a person is cooking with oil. We respond to fire damage emergencies 24-hours a day in Honolulu County.

Aloha! Our team in Kailua wants everyone in Kahuku to be safe while cooking with oil. More fires start in the kitchen than in any other room in a home, and cooking fires are one of the leading causes of fire damage in Hawaii. Here are some safety tips for cooking with oil from the National Fire Protection Association:

  • Always stay in the kitchen when frying on the stovetop
  • Keep an eye on what you fry. If you see wisps of smoke or the oil smells, immediately turn off the burner and/or carefully remove the pan from the burner. Smoke is a dangerous sign that the oil is too hot.
  • Heat the oil slowly to the temperature you need for frying or sautéing
  • Add food gently to the pot or pan, so the oil does not splatter
  • Always cook with a lid beside your pan. If you have a fire, slide the lid over the pan and turn off the burner. Do not remove the cover because the fire could start again. Let the pan cool for a long time. Never throw water on the fire
  • Get everyone out of your home if the fire does not go out or you don’t feel comfortable sliding a lid over the pan. Call the fire department from outside.

Aloha! Our team in Kailua responds to storm damage emergencies every year in Kahuku. Often power outages accompany storms, so we offer these tips for preparing for a power outage from the American Red Cross:

Create a support network. Identify people who can help you stay at home or evacuate during an extended power outage. Keep a paper copy of your contact list.

Stay connected and alert. Sign up for alert systems and apps for text alerts. Have communication devices that work without home power, including a crank or battery radio, a non-cordless home phone, and chargers/batteries for your cell phones and your computers.

Stock food and water. Store non-perishable food and water supplies for at least two weeks. Plan to use coolers and ice to extend food refrigeration and keep a thermometer in the fridge, freezer, or cooler to monitor the food temperature.

Know and plan for your personal and medical electrical needs. Take an inventory of your electrical needs. Consider backup and non-power alternatives for lighting, communication, medical devices, refrigerated medicine, cooking, garage doors, locks, and elevators. Discuss a plan with your doctors for your medical needs.

On the Island of Oahu Hawaii there is a large mix of Islanders from Various Polynesians Islands. From the Islands of, Tonga, Tahiti, and Samoa. SERVPRO of Kailua over the years has recruited within these communities including the BYU campus in La’ie HI for hard dedicated workers for its mitigation team.

Hukilau Beach Park has calm waters for summer swimming (May–October), while the big waves of La’ie Beach Park, or Pounders Beach, draw surfers all year round. Inland, the Laie Falls Trail leads to a waterfall, and the grand Laie Hawaii Temple sits on manicured grounds. Shrimp trucks line the roadside in nearby Kahuku.
