October is Fire Prevention Month--what you can do to stay safe!

10/5/2022 (Permalink)

October is a wonderful month!  Fall is here, football is on tv, Halloween is coming, the cool, crisp mornings are a delight!  While enjoying all of those things, let's focus a moment on fire prevention!  This is a GREAT time to change out the batteries in your smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors.  

The National Fire Protection Association® (NFPA) has announced “Fire Won’t Wait. Plan Your Escape™” as the theme for Fire Prevention WeekTM, which takes place October 9-15. 

So, what does that mean?  Take 5 minutes and have a family planning event.  If a fire were to break out in your home, it will likely create panic and confusion.  By taking a few minutes NOW to plan your escape--it could save your life or the life of your loved ones.  Have a discussion about where the nearest exits are, where to meet up outside and basics a fire and smoke.  Smoke rises, so reinforce the importance of staying low and crawling if necessary.  Smoke inhalation is a major health concern.  So, stay low and cover your face, nose and mouth with your shirt.  Once everyone is safely outside, then call 911 to have the fire department dispatched.
