Oct. 9, 2018 – Fire Prevention Week is underway. During Fire Prevention Week the goal is to educate children and adults on being safe in case of a fire. Across the nation firefighters will attempt to decrease casualties caused by fire through a week long education opportunities.
The theme for this year’s Fire Prevention Week is: Look, Listen, Learn. Be aware of your surroundings because fire can happen anywhere. Look for places fire could start around your home, your work place and the places you have fun at. Listen for the sound of the smoke alarm.
Test your smoke detectors, if they are 10 years old replace them. Do a drill so all know what to do and where to go. Finally, Learn two ways out of every room and out of your house. Make sure all doors and windows are cleared of any clutter.
