October 4th - 10th, 2015 is Fire Prevention week! What are you doing in your home to keep yourself and your family safe?

Thankfully many of our local Fire Departments and their members are out talking Fire Prevention with our local youth groups and schools!

Did you know that roughly half of home fire deaths result from fires reported between 11 p.m. and 7 a.m., when most people are asleep?

Smoke alarms save lives. If there is a fire in your home, smoke spreads fast and you need smoke alarms to give you time to get out. In fact, having a working smoke alarm cuts the chances of dying in a reported fire in half!
