Fire Safety Awareness for October
It's that time of year again where holidays are getting closer, you're cooking more, and fireplaces are being used more than ever. The month of October is all about Fire Safety. Take a look at these tips for staying safe:
- 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 only have 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.
We want you and your family to stay safe! Teach your family these tips to be aware for this upcoming season.
