Fire Prevention Week

It’s Fire Prevention Week.  The theme is “Look. Listen. Learn. Be Aware. Fire can happen anywhere.”

Here are some fire safety tips:

  • look around your home for places fires could start. Identify and eliminate potential fire hazards
  • listen for the sound of a smoke alarm and take it seriously. Once a smoke alarm sounds, there could be just minutes to escape safely. Go to a pre-arranged meeting place discussed in your home fire escape plan
  • learn two ways out of every room and make sure all doors and windows leading outside open easily and are free of clutter

Some very helpful links on what to do if fire does happen is available HERE

Fire prevention week is also a good time to test smoke alarms and replace batteries if needed.
