This year’s Fire Prevention Week campaign is “Hear the Beep Where You Sleep. Every Bedroom Needs a Working Smoke Alarm,” highlighting the importance of having working smoke alarms in every bedroom, outside each sleeping area, and on every level of the home, including the basement.
Roughly half of home fire deaths result from fires reported between 11 p.m. and 7 am, when most people are asleep.
Our annual Fire Department open house is Saturday Oct.3rd from 10-2pm there will be tours, touch a truck, extrication demonstrations and Kids can even put a fire out! Smokey Bear will make a visit. a free bicycle raffle to some lucky youngster. Stop by and say hi!
