Fire Prevention Week

October 8, 2019

October 6-12 is Fire Prevention Week.  Parents and students are invited to check out Frankie's Guide to Fire Safety at https://www.adtsecurity.com/fire-safety-guide/ for fire safety tools, potential hazards in your home, a safety quiz, tips on preparing your own fire safety plan for your home and more important information.  

Click here for a NEW resource that provides a visual description of the typical timeline of a house fire. It shows how quickly a fire spreads and how much time a typical family has to evacuate from the moment a fire ignites. The timeline delves further into the leading causes of home fires as well as the percentage of homes that had an operable smoke alarm when a home fire fatality occurred. Check out this link that serves as a necessary reminder of how important it is to have your home equipped with all necessary fire prevention equipment and to have an evacuation plan in effect.
