Fire Escape plan

Don’t let this happen to you. With the goal of reducing home fire fatalities, the IAFC (International Association of Fire Chiefs) has developed this tool kit to provide fire service leaders with educational materials to assist them in promoting advanced smoke alarm education among their personnel and eventually their community. Please visit this link to watch a video about smoke alarm safety www.smartalarmchoices.org, check them frequently. Prepare a fire escape plan with your family; practice often. Your fire escape plan should include a diagram of your home, escape routes, a safe meeting place for all family members and alternate escape routes. Not all fires are the same so practice your alternate escape routes.

  • Fire Prevention is hosted annually at the local schools. Members of the Department volunteer their time to teach our youths how to stay safe when encountering a fire. Stop, Drop, Cover your face and Roll is just one of the many topics discussed during Fire Prevention.
