Planning ahead key to fire prevention

Posted October 12, 2017

Fire Prevention Week runs from October 8 to 14.

Fire prevention week is in full swing, and this year's theme is every second counts, know 2 ways out.

Monroe Mayor Jamie Mayo says "Fire Prevention Week is a wonderful time for the young, old, and everyone in between to learn important tips and bring awareness to the importance of fire safety".

An hour earlier, firefighters from Engine 64 and Ladder 20 will respond to 719 Knorr St.in Lawndale, where members of the Gillis family will practice their home escape plan.

In their detailed escape plan, they not only have 2 ways out of every room, but contingency plans including fire extinguishers and an escape ladder for the second floor.

North Metro Fire will have their inflatable safety house set up at Flatiron Crossing Mall, 1 West Flatiron Crossing Drive, from 10 a.m.to 1 p.m. After completing the escape plan, families are asked to turn their front porch light on so passing firemen know that you've completed the safety drill. "This morning we did a little fire activity during circle time, so that got them excited, but they'll definitely go home and talk about it with their parents".

"We will have our apparatus on display, we'll have games for the kids, we'll have Sparky the Fire Dog", he said.

If you have an automatic fire alarm system, have it serviced by a certified alarm company at least once each year. It also includes two ways out of every room, usually a door and a window, with a clear path to an outside meeting place that's a safe distance from the home.

This will be done at no cost to residents, including if a smoke detector is installed or replaced in the home. In short, home fires present a real risk that residents need to take seriously. "If there is a small fire on the stove they might work, but if it has spread to the counter or cupboards it's too late and they aren't going to put the fire out".
