Fire department kicks of Fire Prevention Week today

Plan two ways out in case of fire

Wednesday, Oct. 11 - Fun "N" Learning at the North YMCAArea grade schools, home schools and special needs children are invited to attend this outdoor event where they have the opportunity to interact with the Wichita Fire Department and area injury-prevention coalition partners. TRUMP, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim October 8 through October 14, 2017, as Fire Prevention Week.

This year's theme is "Every second counts, plan two ways out". If a fire occurs, close the doors behind you as you leave and call 911 from outside.

The Everett Fire Department is inviting people to stop by their stations over the next week to see what goes on inside and learn what families can do to better prepare for a home emergency. You and your family are fast asleep when you awaken to the smoke alarm sounding and the smell of smoke.

"If there would be a fire in the next room, it could be completely gutted out", he said. Never go back into a burning or smokey building until firefighters say it's OK.

"It's like building muscle memory", Oil City Fire Chief Mark Hicks said about practicing the plan.

October 07-Students who have grown accustomed to visiting the local fire station, clambering onto big red firetrucks and leaving with a plastic helmet in hand during National Fire Prevention Week won't have as many options in this year.

Make sure all windows and doors can be opened easily from the inside and access is not blocked.

Ellsworth's fire inspector, Jason Kmiotek, also recommended to look for exits in every facility you enter. In addition to a home escape plan, homes must have working smoke alarms.

One of the most common sources of fires are heaters, make sure you have those away from flammable items, like your curtains. One drill should take place during the day, and another at night. While it isn't clear whether those conditions contributed to the individuals' inability to escape or the spread of the fire, hoarding items can make it more complicated to plan escape routes, and also more hard for responding firefighters to get to you.

If not, the EFD will replace the batteries in the smoke detector (s) or provide a free smoke detector for the household.
