Auto Vehicle Fires: Be Prepared in Case of an Emergency


The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) recently acknowledged that a vehicle fire problem exists in the United States. According to NFPA statistics, more people died from highway vehicle fires than from apartment fires in 2004. Yet, few drivers think of a fire extinguisher as a critical component of their car safety kit. Reports show that on average, a vehicle fire occurs once every two minutes, and most happen during the summer months – June, July and August. A fire extinguisher within reach inside the vehicle can be useful in an emergency or to quickly put out a small, smoldering fire.


  • More than 266,000 highway vehicle fires occurred in 2004, causing nearly $1 billion in property loss, cites the National Fire Protection Association.
  • Between 1999-2002, passenger cars accounted for 80 percent of the nearly 270,000 highway vehicle fires.
  • Mechanical or electrical failures cause more than two-thirds (71 percent) of highway vehicle fires, and 66 percent begin in the engine, running gear or wheel area.
  • According to consumer affairs Web sites, many automobile owners who experienced mechanical-related vehicle fires initially smelled a strange odor then witnessed smoke filtering from under the hood or wheel area.
  • Once flames occur in the engine, it takes an average of four minutes for the fire to reach the passenger compartment, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
  • On average, Americans commute 52 minutes to and from work. That equals nine days a year spent in the car, not counting road trips or vacations. (ABC News Poll)
  • All commercial vehicles must have at least one UL-rated 5-B:C extinguisher, or a 10- B:C unit if carrying hazardous materials. Passenger cars do not need to carry fire extinguishers, yet automobiles are involved in 12 times as many fires as commercial freight trucks and result in larger numbers of casualties and a larger dollar loss.


  • Make sure that everyone has exited the vehicle.
  • Notify the fire department before attempting to extinguish the fire.
  • Use your extinguisher only to keep a small, smoldering, contained fire from growing or to create a safe pathway from the vehicle.
  • Read the instructions and become familiar with your fire extinguisher’s parts and operation BEFORE a fire breaks out.
  • Remember the “PASS” system:
    • Pull the pin. Hold unit upright.
    • Aim at the base of the fire.
    • Squeeze lever.
    • Sweep from side to side.

car dealer bond FAQ

Car Dealer Bond Vital Info…

What is a dealer bond?

The car dealer bond protects your customers against fraudulent or unethical actions by a dealer.

The bond assures the dealer is financially secure in cases where a customer is cheated by a dealer.

The DMV and flooring company can also make claims against this dealer bond.

Can I make a down payment and then pay monthly for the dealer bond?



for the best rates on a retail or wholesale car dealer bond

and ask about our 30% down payment option.

All surety bond carriers ask for payment of the bond in full,


Your Car Dealer Bond

has set up a financing program to give

California dealers access to a payment plan for their DMV bond.


The DMV needs the OL-25 form signed – what is this and where do I get it?

The OL 25 is your surety dealer bond.

The original bond that will be sent from your bond carrier will meet this requirement.

How long does it take to receive the initial dealer bond quote?

Approximately 24 hours, unless your FICO score is below 650.

Then the process usually takes 2 days.

How long does it take to receive the originally-signed dealer bond needed to obtain my license?

From the time we receive your payment,

it’s typically a week to 10 days before your receive your bond in hand depending on where you are located in the country.

We’ve invested in check-by-fax and check-by-email to help expedite our service.

What if I have had some credit issues (bankruptcies, short-sales, foreclosures, etc.)

Most dealers these days have encountered credit issues of some sort.

We have the most competitive surety carriers for all credit levels so no worries if your credit is less than perfect!

I started with a $10,000 bond because I am a wholesale dealer and thought I would sell 24 vehicles or less per year.

Will the surety company increase the limit of my bond from $10,000 to $50,000 for additional premium

if I will sell 25 or more cars or I want to retail or auto broker?

Unfortunately not.

Once your DMV inspector accepts your bond and issues your dealer license, the surety company will not make any refunds whatsoever.

The $10,000 bond would have to be canceled and a $50,000 bond would need to be written without a credit or refund.

Can I pay with a credit card?

You sure can.

For your convenience, we accept Visa, Mastercard, Discover, and American Express.

A standard convenience charge of 5% will be applied.

While we hope you don’t need to incur this additional expense, some of our customers have found this option extremely helpful.

More Important Info about Your Car Dealer Bond…

RIDER Process: needing a rider can be very frustrating if it’s only needed because your app was incomplete or something was incorrect. One of most common reasons for a rider that we see is the dealer forgot to put his middle name on the app. The cost is $100 and having to go through this process will add on 2 – 3 weeks to the time before you can be licensed. We are here to help and would rather spend 10 minutes answering your questions to provide you with the best possible experience with respects to your bond acquisition.

The two (2) most time-consuming steps of the car dealer licensing process are:

  • getting the LiveScan fingerprints into the Department of Justice system. This takes about 45 days and costs about $70; and
  • forming a corp. or LLC (if applicable). This also takes about 45 – 60 days, although the Secretary of State offers an expedited service for about $375 vs. about $100.

always remember…respond…rescue…risk

And the “R” they are worthy of in return

By Alan Barcelona, President, California Statewide Law Enforcement Association

A Message To Our Members, Sworn & Non-Sworn:

Every law enforcement officer who wears a badge has taken an oath to protect and to serve,  even at his or her own peril.  On a daily basis, these fine, brave men and women RESPOND to calls for help and to very dangerous situations. They RESCUE citizens from harmful individuals and  accidents and in doing so, RISK their own safety and their lives.  They are in the face of danger and often have to make split-second decisions to save others and to save themselves.  Not every human is cut out for this stressful but proud profession and not every human is willing to make that kind of sacrifice for the safety of another, most often, a complete stranger.

In the wake of the “use of force” cases that are currently in the national spotlight, the anti-police rhetoric that has  followed, and the December 20th assassinations of New York City Police Officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos – I want to remind the citizens of California and this nation, that no one puts more on the line each and every day than our law enforcement officers, our firefighters and those who serve in our military.

These law enforcement officers have families – they are mothers and fathers, sons and daughters, sisters and brothers, uncles and aunts, nieces and nephews and cousins.  They, like anyone else who goes to work, have a right to return home to their families at the end of their shifts.

Our law enforcement officers feel the anger and hatred from some of those they have taken an oath to protect, and that hurts.  Our law enforcement officers are in the thick of protestors who hurl rocks and bottles at them as the officers work to keep people and property safe, and that is sinful.  For misguided individuals to stand up in front of microphones and cameras denouncing the peace officers in this country is a shame.

Our law enforcement officers would never demand our RESPECT, they don’t have to – they are worthy of it.  My message to the law-abiding citizens in  this state and in the country is this: Don’t let our law enforcement officers stand alone to shoulder the brunt of anti-police rhetoric that is making headlines.  Let your officers know you are there for them just as they are there for you.  A kind word, a letter, a blue light on your porch.  Be the eyes and ears of our law enforcement officers and please watch their backs.

To our law enforcement officers:  Be safe, be true to your oath, take the necessary precautions to ensure you return home to your loved ones and stand tall!  The silent majority will rise to the occasion and thank you for your service and your sacrifice.

got jody forster…..the forms lady ???



2-Part Buyers Guides

(100 per pack)


All auto dealers throughout the United States are required to display this two page (one page duplicated) form in the side window of every used vehicle offered for sale. The Federal Trade Commission oversees this regulation to disclose whether or not a dealer is offering any kind of warranty. The form must be prominently displayed on a vehicle’s window while the vehicle sits in the dealer’s inventory. The form may be removed from a window for a “test drive”, but must be returned to the window immediately upon return from the test drive if a sale is not consumated. If the vehicle is sold, the form is signed and part of the paperwork processed at delivery of the vehicle. The one and only purpose of this form is to disclose what warranties, if any, are included with the purchase if this vehicle. A “used vehicle” is defined by the Federal Trade Commission as any vehicle previously registered, and any vehicle previously used. This includes new vehicle rollbacks as well as unlicensed demonstrators (demos). There is an exemption for vehicles weighing in excess of 6,000 lbs. unladen weight, which means motorhomes and heavier duty trucks are exempt from the “Buyers Guide” regulations. Required by law for consumer protection on used vehicles, this form meets federal regulations. Pressure sensitive tape at the top and bottom holds this 2-part carbonless, 8 1/2″ wide x 11″ tall form to the window. Available in two styles: “As-Is” or “Implied Warranty”. Note, some states prohibit “As-Is” sales. Sold in packs of 100. Quantity Discount Prices available on quantities of 5 and 10 or more packs.
