  1. Average homeowners are unaware of the seriousness of a fire. How it could start, how quick it can spread and all the other dangers, just from smoke. Education is the key and even with the exceptional department, our village is represented by-we need to make their jobs easier. How many citizens know how their furnaces work? How important carbon monoxide detectors are. Most have no plan of escape if a fire should happen, especially at night. Take nothing away from how Super our BG Fire Department operates and performs their tasks. It's special, deserving of its top ratings but there is always room for improvement. Another grateful citizen, proud to live in BG and who trusts the system!
