Fire Safety

Fire Safety Week is October 5 - 11, 2014. Fire prevention day is Thursday, October 9th.

Preventing fires is an important part of fire safety. Cooking and cigarettes are main causes of home fires. 65% of house fire deaths happen in homes without working smoke alarms. Smoke alarms should be on every level of your home; Inside bedrooms, and outside of sleeping areas. Smoke detectors should be tested once a month and you should replace the batteries, once a year. Children and seniors are at the greatest risk of dying in a fire, make sure you and your family members have an escape plan and know how to call for help.
