Fire Prevention Week 2015
October 4-10, 2015 is Fire Prevention Week! This year’s theme is: “Hear the Beep Where You Sleep. Every bedroom needs a working smoke alarm!”
Smoke alarms should be installed in every bedroom, outside each separate sleeping area, and on every level of your home, including the basement. According to the U.S. Fire Administration (USFA), half of home fire deaths result from fires reported between 11 p.m. and 7 a.m. when most people are asleep.
Smoke alarms save lives! If there is a fire in your home, a working smoke alarm will give you a chance to quickly escape. Learn how to properly install and maintain smoke alarms in your home by visiting the National Fire Protection Association’s (NFPA) “Smoke Alarm Central.”
Fire safety is something everyone can practice. The NFPA has interactive games and activities to make Fire Prevention Week fun for the entire family. Test your fire safety knowledge with the NPFA Fire Quiz. Kids can also learn how to stay safe with puzzles and videos featuring “Sparky the Fire Dog.” -as excerpted from the FEMA US Community & Preparedness e-Brief
