Fire Prevention Week
NATIONAL FIRE PREVENTION WEEK THEME
Fire Prevention Week for 2022 is October 9-15!
This year’s Fire Prevention Week campaign is “Fire won't wait. Plan your escape.” It might sound simple to do, but it is important to take the time with your family to go over different escape routes in your home in case of a fire. Establish a "meeting Place" in your front yard, whether it is at a tree or even the mailbox. That way if your family goes out different doors or even a window, you can all meet at that established area to make sure everyone is out! Practice your escape drills or go over them at least once a month. This is a good time to test your smoke detectors as well, so everyone knows the sound that they make and to know that they are still working properly.

Discussing a Fire Safety Plan with your children is an important step in keeping your family safe in the event of a fire emergency. Our Fire & Safety Activity Book provides a fun and safe opportunity for parents or guardians to talk about the safety tips and facts that are included in it. If you need more information or have questions, call your local fire department, who will be glad to help.
The National Fire Protection Association offers a variety of educational resources. Their site provides a number of tip sheets and activity sheets for kids. Find them at www.nfpa.org/Public-Education or scan this QR code:
