October is Fire Prevention Month in the U.S. - a great reminder to take time with your family to review and practice a plan of action. If a fire breaks out in your home, you may have only a few minutes to get out safely. Everyone needs to know what to do and where to go!!!! The 2018 Fire Prevention Week Campaign is Look. Listen. Learn:


1.  LOOK around your home for fire hazards. Take the necessary steps to fix them.

2.  LISTEN for the sound of the smoke alarm. When the smoke alarm sounds, get outside and stay outside.

3.  LEARN two ways out of every room. Have an outside meeting place a safe distance in front of your home where everyone can meet. Once you are safely outside, call 9-1-1.

Life and Death

In the U.S. an average of seven people per day die in a home fire. Even though 71% of Americans claim they have an escape plan, only 47% of them have practiced it. Fire Prevention month wasn't established to teach us to prevent fires but to prevent death, injury, property and economic loss from a fire. For the most part, we don't set out to start fires and we can't predict them . . . they just happen, then we react. How you react is the difference between life and death.

Top Tips

🔥Install smoke alarms on every level of your home, inside bedrooms and outside sleeping areas.

🔥Test smoke alarms every month and change batteries as needed.  Talk with family members about a fire escape plan and practice the plan twice a year.

🔥If a fire occurs in your home, GET OUT, STAY OUT, and CALL 9-1-1. Never go back inside for anything or anyone.
