October is Fire Prevention Month
National Fire Protection Association has declared the 2017 theme to be,
In a fire, seconds count. Seconds can mean the difference between residents of our community escaping safety from a fire or having their lives end in tragedy.
Fire safety is not just for the workplace. Homes represent a significant fire hazard to what and who we hold dear.
Protect them by doing these things tonight.
Test your smoke detector by pushing the button. Check the date of manufacture. Replace if over 10 years old.
Check your fire extinguisher’s date of manufacture. Replace if over 10 years old.
Hold a fire drill with your family. Know two ways out. Know to call 9-1-1 from OUTSIDE the house.
