Fire Prevention Week Underway In CK

Plan two ways out in case of fire

-Teach children how to escape on their own in case you can't help them. Fire Prevention Week is October 8-14, 2017.

This year's Fire Prevention Week Theme is "Every Second Counts: Have 2 Ways Out".

"If you have a fire at home you may only have less than three minutes after the alarm sounds to get out safely".

Developing and practicing a home plan is so everyone will snap into action and escape as quickly as possible in the event a fire or other emergency happens.

"You'll either get a free smoke detector or free pizza", Mosby said.

Traditionally, the West Hartford Fire Department hosts an open house Monday through Friday - one at each of the town's five fire stations - during the week and invites the public to learn about fire safety and interact with local firefighters.

Hamburgers, hot dogs and ice cream will be provided courtesy of the Fire Department and Auxiliary. Never go back inside a burning building. "That's why we're making a concerted effort to educate MA residents about the importance of planning and practicing a home escape plan that everyone knows".




National Fire Prevention Week commemorates the great Chicago Fire of 1871 that killed more than 250 people, left 100,000 homeless and destroyed more than 17,400 buildings. "Most fatal fires occur in the home, and I've seen the tragedy that can result when people don't get out", said State Fire Marshal Ostroskey.

Judson said to make sure all the smoke detectors in your home are working properly, and WPFD has some smoke detectors available for homeowners. While the fire department is known for its role in responding to a fire, it can also provide resources for those in the community to be better protected from a fire starting or spreading. The Smoke Alarms will be installed in the homes of Detroit residents who meet the criteria for the department's Smoke Alarm Installation Program. It reinforces why everyone needs to have an escape plan.

"You need to practice to see if it works for the oldest down to the youngest", Clark said.

^ Practice the home fire drill twice a year; at night and during the day.

Fire Prevention Week commemorates the Great Chicago Fire of October 8, 1871.

"Home escape planning is one of the most basic but critical elements of home fire safety", explains Summit Fire Chief Eric Evers.
