How to Observe Fire Prevention Week
- Be Prepared
The purpose of Fire Prevention Week is to bring awareness to the risk of death in case of a fire and provide educational resources to people of all ages, races, and socioeconomic status in order to keep everyone safe.
- Make an Escape Plan
- Change the batteries in your smoke detector regularly, use daylight savings time as a reminder
- Be mindful of where you put your space heaters, keep them away from curtains and other loose fabrics around the home
- In the kitchen, never leave food cooking unattended and don’t pour water on a grease fire. Put a lid on it to smother it, turn off the burner and let it cool.
- Always, watch the placement of candles and never leave them lit while you are not home
When in doubt, just get out and call 911!
