NFPA Fire Prevention Week
Fire Prevention Weeks 2021 campaign is, “Learn the Sounds of Fire Safety.” The campaign works to educate everyone about the different sounds the smoke and carbon monoxide alarms make. Teaching people to know these sounds will allow people to be able to take action when they hear them and allow them to get to safety.
Everyone has the ability to help make our community a safer place by learning about how and why fires begin. It is also important to be able to identify any sort of potential hazard that can arise in everyday lives. Everything you need to know to help keep you, your family, and your community safe from fire and other hazards can be found here.
