Fire Safety Week

Fire Safety Week takes place from October 3rd to 9th.  This year’s theme is “Learn the Sounds of Fire Safety”.

It is important that everyone understand the different sounds the smoke and carbon monoxide alarms make. Knowing what to do when an alarm sounds will keep you and your family safe. When an alarm makes noises – a beeping sound or a chirping sound – you must take action.  Make sure you have a Fire Safety Plan for your home and that everyone in your household knows what to do when they hear the sound.

For more information about fire safety, please visit the Fire Prevention Week website, and the Office of the Solicitor General website.
