For Fire Prevention Week, we were so excited to name Siarah Gerard, a student from Westminster Elementary School, as Fire Chief for a Day. Siarah got a pretty cool firefighter experience including some fire training, lunch at the station and a sweet new uniform. Congrats Siarah!
This year’s Fire Prevention Week campaign was “Look. Listen. Learn. Be aware. Fire can happen anywhere".
Look for places fire could start. Take a good look around your home. Identify potential Fire Hazards and take care of them.
Listen for the sound of the smoke alarm. You could have only minutes to escape safely once the smoke alarm sounds. Go to your outside meeting place, which should be a safe distance from the home and where everyone should know to meet.
Learn two ways out of every room and make sure all doors and windows leading outside open easily and are free of clutter.
