Fire Prevention Week

Sunday, October 7, 2018

October 7-13 is Fire Prevention Week.  For the past three consecutive years the National Fire Protection Association has focused awareness on smoke detectors.  For 2018 they have shifted the message to situational awareness with the banner “Look. Listen. Learn. Be aware – fire can happen anywhere.” 

This year’s theme identifies basic but essential ways we all can reduce our risk to fire and be prepared in the event of one.

  • ·Look for places fire can start (portable heater less than 3 ft. from combustibles? Overloaded power cord? Chimney flue not cleaned in years?)
  • · Listen for the sound of the smoke alarm (don’t ignore - call 911)
  • · Learn two ways out of each room (windows count on the first floor)

This is first-rate guidance applicable not only while at home but wherever you may be.

Lastly, in the spirit of Fire Prevention Week, remember to check your smoke detectors monthly and dust off your exit plan in the event of a fire.
