SafeHaven is a simple residential self-assessment of home safety and security jointly sponsored by the Lake Elmo Fire Department and Washington County Sheriff’s Office. Our goal is for you to be as safe as possible in your own home. We hope the only time you see a fire truck is during a parade and avoid the need to call us for an emergency, by providing these home safety tips. We can accomplish this best through education, prevention, and an on-going partnership as your Fire Department. That is exactly what Safe Haven is about. For more information on the SafeHaven and safety checklists, see the full SafeHaven booklet below.  If you have questions or know that you would like some services, please call the Lake Elmo Fire Department at (651) 747-3930.
