Fire Prevention Week

Fire Prevention week is October 9-15, 2016. 

Although fire prevention is important year-round, Fire Prevention Week activities give us more opportunities to talk with you about what you can do to make sure you, your family and home are fire safe.

The theme for this year's Fire Prevention Week is "Don't Wait - Check the Date! Replace smoke alarms every 10 years." Check out the video below to learn how to find the date that your smoke alarms were manufactured. If they were manufactured 10 or more years ago, don't wait, replace them right away.
