This year’s Fire Prevention Week theme is, “Look. Listen. Learn. Be aware – fire can happen anywhere.”
Families are encouraged to check smoke alarms and to practice fire escape plans twice a year. Fire drills should be practiced at night and during the day using different escape routes and children should be taught how to escape on their own.
