Fire Prevention Week Coming October 4-10

Saturday, September 26, 2015  Keep Your Family Safe with a Working Smoke Alarm in Every Bedroom! 

The key message of this year's Fire Prevention Week campaign, October 4-10, is to install smoke alarms in every bedroom, outside each separate sleeping area, and on every level of your home, including the basement. Larger homes may need more alarms.

Did you know that half of the home fire deaths result from fires reported 11 pm and 7 am, when most people are asleep?

Smoke alarms save lives. If there is a fire in your home, fire spreads and you need smoke alarms to give you time to get out. In fact, having a working smoke alarm cuts the chances of dying in a reported fire in half!
