Fire Prevention Week across BC

The week is a national campaign that runs until Saturday. Many fire departments in the area held an open house over the weekend to kick it off

Chief Lehman said the department's offers a free Residential Safety Program (RSP), which proactively educates residents about fire safety in the home and also installs smoke alarms (and soon, carbon monoxide detectors) in homes that require them. The fire killed more than 250 people, left 100,000 homeless, destroyed more than 17,400 structures and burned more than 2,000 acres, according to the National Fire Prevention Association. This year's Fire Prevention Week theme, "Every Second Counts: Plan 2 Ways Out" aims to reinforce potentially life-saving messages. Kids of all ages can visit and learn at 8:30 and 10:30 A.M.at the Central Fire Station.

"It's important to remember most fires are behavioural, whether it's careless smoking or unattended cooking", Mostacci said. A plan, practiced regularly, ensures that everyone in the home knows how to use those precious few minutes wisely.

Thank you for publishing this letter to help increase safety from fire. That's why you should always have a plan for escape.

Young children got a firsthand look at fire trucks seeing how they operate in real life.

Andy Murray will return for Australian Open claims tournament director
The women's trophy will be presented by USA great Billie Jean King, 50 years after she won her first Australian Open title. Serena Williams and partner Alexis Ohanian attend a gala event before the birth of her daughter in May.

"It's going to be very dark and smoky and there's a lot of fear at that time", said Jaco. It's something no one really wants to think about, but the reality is having a well thought out plan can save your life and the lives of your loved ones. This week is National Fire Prevention Week, and what better time to prepare yourselves and your family than now.

The NFPA recommends that parents teach children how to escape on their own, to close doors while escaping to slow the spread of smoke, heat and fire.

Make sure your smoke alarms work. Sadly, this outlook puts millions of Americans at risk, as they fail to check their smoke alarms or develop an escape plan. If you are not comfortable using an extinguisher, in the event of a fire, get out and call 911.

Local fire departments will be visiting elementary schools, participating in fire drills and promoting fire prevention and protection in the home.
