The Sanford Fire Department recently responded to a house fire that was caused by a faulty toaster that has been placed on voluntary recall by the manufacturer. 

If you have a Black and Decker toaster, please check the model number to see if it is on the recall list.  You can simply check through "Google" under BLack and Decker toaster recalls or call the Sanford Fire Department at 407.562.2786.

It is a good practice to unplug ANY appliance that you are not using.  The family lost most of their furniture due to smoke damage.  We do   not want this to happen again, especially anyone in Sanford.


The Fire Prevention Division is committed to applying the three Es of development:

to make your project a success and to ensure the safety and welfare of our citizens.
