HIGHLAND FIRE DEPARTMENT
FIRE SAFETY TIP
Intense storms have the
ability to fell trees and down power
lines throughout the town.
To stay safe during dangerous weather, Fire ChiefBill Timmer urges residents to:
Steer clear of downed power lines
and call NIPSCO immediately.
Never run a generator in an
enclosed space because it produces
carbon monoxide, which can kill.
If you hear the town sirens or a
warning on television or radio that
says take cover — don’t wait.
Invest in a weather radio for alerts
when dangerous weather is nearby.

For as long as I can remember, I wanted to spend my days and nights fighting fires;
working to keep people safe. The way I look at it, I’m the luckiest guy in town because for
the past two decades, I’ve gotten to do just that.
I love planning for any one of a legion of potential disaster scenarios as much as I like
thinking on my feet – reacting to what can never be anticipated.
I work with a talented and dedicated crew of volunteers who are passionate about their
mission to keep you safe. We spend our evenings and weekends training for the
unexpected. In addition to fighting fires, we also train long and hard on rescue. Protecting
our citizens during weather emergencies has become a big part of our job. From
microbursts, tornadoes and flooding in the summer to cold water rescues in the winter,
we work hard to keep you safe.
During a single summer day, we responded to a gas main break at a construction site,
freed a toddler who had gotten her head stuck between staircase spindles and then sat
down with other department heads to plan for hazardous weather.
It’s how any day might go in town and I love every minute of it!
