Fire Prevention Week October 7-13, 2018

This year’s FPW campaign, “Look. Listen. Learn. Be aware. Fire can happen anywhere,” works to educate people about three basic but essential steps to take to reduce the likelihood of having a fire––and how to escape safely in the event of one:

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 know to meet.

Learn two ways out of every room and make sure all doors and windows leading outside open easily and are free of clutter.

Education tools for teachers and families including free downloads are available at firepreventionweek.org.

Fire Department's Open House

Fire Station 2, 19695 Municipal Drive

The open house is an opportunity to educate the public about fire safety and preventative measures that you can take to avoid fires or other emergencies in your home. In addition, we will give tours of the fire station and fire trucks. And demonstrate some of the many ways we serve the community. Sparky the Fire Pup will be there for photos and if the weather is favorable, North Memorial Air Care helicopter and flight crew will visit!

“Look” for places a 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 know to meet.
