Fire Prevention Month

October is Fire Prevention Month. This year’s theme is “Learn the Sounds of Fire Safety”. As we celebrate this year’s theme, we’ll be asking others some of the following questions: What is your alarm telling? Is there a beep or a chirp coming out of your smoke or carbon monoxide alarm? What does it mean? The overall idea is helping our communities understand one main thought: The idea of knowing the difference can save you, your home and your family.
