NATIONAL FIRE PREVENTION WEEK

October 5th - 11th

Fire Prevention Week is right around the corner!  Did you know that the average person don’t test their smoke detectors as often as they should?  It is recommended to test your smoke detectors once a month.  Smoke travels fast when there is a fire.  You need to give yourself enough time to get out. Having a working smoke alarm will allow you enough time.

This is just a couple of the statistics that you can find on www.nfpa.org website.  Please see the links below for some helpful facts and tips.
