Fire Prevention Week
Sunday, October 3, 2021
Fire Safety Week is recognized annually each October. Join the Irving Fire Department to learn more about fire safety.
This year’s FPW campaign, “Learn the Sounds of Fire Safety!” works to educate everyone about the different sounds the smoke and carbon monoxide alarms make. Knowing what to do when an alarm sounds helps keep everyone safe. When an alarm makes noises – a beeping sound or a chirping sound – take action.
For the deaf or hard of hearing
There are smoke alarms and alert devices that alert people who are deaf or hard of hearing. These devices include strobe lights that flash to alert people when the smoke alarm sounds. Pillow or bed shakers designed to work with a smoke alarm also can be purchased and installed
