Fire Prevention Week - October 7-13, 2018


The Irving Fire Department reminds everyone about FIRE PREVENTION WEEK and this year's theme is LOOK. LISTEN. LEARN. Be aware. Fire can happen anywhere.

Plan Ahead! If a fire breaks out in your home, you may have only a few minutes to get out safely once the smoke alarm sounds. Everyone needs to know what to do and where to go if there is a fire.

  • "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.
