*** Safety Alert ***

The Office of Fire Prevention and Control’s Investigation Branch recently investigated a fire that originated within the cargo area of a law enforcement vehicle. The investigation concluded that road flares, stored within that area, were ignited the result of inadvertent contact between the striker (red phosphorous) and ignition button of separate flares. Those flares had been stored within an installed tray.
