News Blog Category - News Fire Safety Week is Oct. 8 through 14 this year. Here are some tips to help keep your family safe:
  • At home, please check your smoke detector batteries and expiration date on your extinguisher. It is recommended to have a smoke detector on each level of your home.
  • Discuss fire safety with your child. Make sure they know to get out of the building as fast as they can, and not to hide from firefighters. Explain that if it is smoky, they should get low by ducking or crawling.
  • Make a family plan and meeting spot. Your family meeting spot should be somewhere close by, but a safe distance from your home, such as a tree, mailbox, or a neighbor’s home. This is where your child should know to go if there is a fire in your home.
