Fire Prevention Week

This week, the week of 4-10 October, is being observed as Fire Prevention Week. This year’s theme is “Hear the BEEP where you SLEEP.”

The theme is designed to remind people that approximately half of home fire deaths result from fires reported between 11:00 PM and 7:00 AM, when most people are asleep and that smoke alarms save lives .
