Fire Prevention Week

Help us spread the word about this year's Fire Prevention Week which was celebrated from Sunday, October 7 through Saturday, October 2018. This year's theme is Look. Listen. Learn. Be aware. Fire can happen anywhere. 

Please remember the following:

  • “LOOK” for places fire could start. Take a good look around your home. Identify potential fire hazards and take care of them. 
  • “LISTEN” for the sound of the smoke alarm. You could have only minutes to escape safely once the smoke alarm sounds. Go to your outside meeting place, which should be a safe distance from the home and where everyone should meet.
  • “LEARN” two ways out of every room and make sure all doors and windows leading outside open easily and are free of clutter. Click here to learn more about the importance of having a Fire Escape Plan.

The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) has created a Fire Safety Checklist to help you remember to Look. Listen. Learn.
