Refrigerator Safety

If you have an old refrigerator that you have placed on the curb for pickup, please call the Roanoke Fire-EMS Department. Roanoke Fire-EMS will come remove the door from the refrigerator before you dispose of it. You may ask, why? Children are naturally curious, and they may climb into the refrigerator and become locked inside, which could turn into a tragedy. Our crews will remove the door from the refrigerator to ensure that a child cannot become trapped inside. Call Roanoke Fire-EMS at 853-2327 for more information.
