Fire Prevention

Fire Prevention Education is one of the most rewarding programs you could participate in, whether you are a child, parent, teacher or firefighter.

Knowing what to do, attending these programs could save your life or the life of someone near and dear.

The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) estimates that approximately 80 percent of all fire deaths in the United States and Canada occur in the home. Roughly 11 people per day, die in home fires in the U.S and Canada.

Many lives can be saved if people react immediately when a fire alarm sounds. Once a fire starts, there's no time to develop a plan. The NFPA urges everyone to "Know When to Go".

The best protection against fire is preventing one from occurring at all. By educating yourself and your family, plus taking the steps to properly equip your home, the chances of ever having to personally deal with a fire become less.

In case of fire emergency, please call 861-3222.
