2018 Fire Prevention Week (October 7th-13th)

This year’s FPW campaign, “Look. Listen. Learn. Be aware. Fire can happen anywhere,” works to educate people
about three basic but essential steps to take to reduce the likelihood of having a fire––and how to escape safely
in the event of one:

Look for places fire could start. Take a good look around your home. Identify potential fire hazards and take care
of them.

Listen for the sound of the smoke alarm. You could have only minutes to escape safely once the smoke alarm
sounds. Go to your outside meeting place, which should be a safe distance from the home and where everyone
should know to meet.

Learn two ways out of every room and make sure all doors and windows leading outside open easily and are
free of clutter.
