Fire Safety Month

fire prevention

In a fire, seconds count. Seconds can mean the difference between residents of our community escpaing safely from a fire or having their lives end in tragedy.

  • Draw a map of your home with all members of your household, marking two exits from each room and a path to the outside from each exit. 
  • Practice your home fire drill twice a year. Conduct one at night and one during the day with everyone in your home, and practice using different ways out.
  • Teach children how to escape on their own in case you can't help them.
  • Make sure the number of your home is clearly marked and easy for the fire department to find.
  • Close doors behind you has you leave - this may slow the spread of smoke, heat, and fire.
  • Once you get outside, stay outside. Never go back inside a burning building.

**National Fire Prevention Week is October 8 - 14**
