2018’s Fire Prevention Week theme is “Look, Listen, Be Aware-Fire can happen anywhere”
Fire departments respond regularly to residential smoke alarms sounding, where there are no fires, and residents needing assistance with them. Usually this is just a case of the batteries needing to be replaced, and an alarm the resident is not familiar with. Often this is a late night disturbance for the resident (why does that always seem to happen at 2:00am?) that could have been avoided by regularly changing the batteries.
October 7th through the 13th is National Fire Prevention Week.
The 2018 theme for Fire Prevention Week is “Look, Listen, Be Aware-Fire can happen anywhere” reminding us that as Americans we need to take personal responsibility for reducing our risk of fire. To further mark this week, each day we will be highlighting a different aspect of fire prevention.READ MORE
