The  Bay Minette Fire Department will be hosting their 2nd Annual Dash & Splash, 5k, Fun Run and Pool Party NEXT Friday, September 11th at the  Bay Minette City Pool!

Proceeds from the Annual Dash & Splash will benefit the Bay Minette Fire Department and their Fire Prevention Programs. Over the past year the BMFD has given away and installed approximately 200 smoke detectors in homes in our community. In addition to the smoke detector giveaway program, the Bay Minette Firefighters see between 1,700-2,000 school age children each year teaching them about fire safety and leaving them with learning tools such as activity books, helmets and more to take home with them to ensure a lasting impression about fire prevention.
 
The BMFD is currently seeking sponsors for this year's event, as well as participants!  CLICK HERE for more information on how to get involved!

  If you have any questions, feel free to contact the Bay Minette Fire Department at 251-580-1617 or  bayminettefire@gmail.com.
