October is National Fire Safety Month. Throughout the month of October, you will hear about your local public service departments help spread the word about fire safety!
Families should not limit fire safety education to their schools or fire departments but take a proactive approach at home as well.
Create a fire escape route and run a family fire drill monthly. Remember to have a safe meeting spot away from the house for family members to meet.
Have working fire extinguishers in your home as well as smoke & carbon monoxide detectors.
Create a to go emergency bag and place it in an easily accessible place so you can grab it in the case of an emergency!
Make sure chemicals, matches and lighters are stored properly and away from children!
