Inside Look at a Fire Investigation

​You have probably seen buildings on fire on a newscast. Or perhaps you've even watched from the curb as a home in your neighborhood burns. Investigators have the difficult job of putting the pieces together to figure out what happened. We’re giving you a unique behind-the-scenes look at the forensics of fire investigation. Check out the latest video from our Mic’d Up series.

See Something, Say Something

​Restaurant patios. Bike trails. Walking paths. Anywhere you go outdoors people are enjoying the summer weather. Help keep it safe for everyone. If You See Something, Say Something. Call 911 to report suspicious activity like an unattended package or someone trying to break into a restricted area.

Prevent Fires On and Off Campus

​Fire kills Minnesota college students every year both on and off campus. Here are some basic campus fire safety tips:

  • Make sure there is a smoke alarm in every bedroom and on every level of the house if you live off campus.
  • Is your dorm equipped with an automatic fire-sprinkler system? Find out.
  • Know two escape routes out of your dorm or off-campus residence.

Check out our SFMD video on campus fire safety.

Emergency Alerts on Your Cell Phone

​In weather emergencies, warnings can save lives. But traditional warning methods such as television, radio and outdoor sirens don’t always reach everyone. Emergency officials now have a way to send warnings directly to cell phones in affected areas — Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEAs). These warnings will be broadcast to all phones within range of designated cell towers.
