Fire Prevention Week 2022

Member Elizabeth Rudd, October 13

Hear A Beep Get On Your Feet. Hear A Chirp Make A Change.

If you aren’t sure what sound your detector is making please evacuate your home and call 911. It is always better to err on the ... (Full Story & Photos)

No Caption Fire Prevention Week 2022

Member Elizabeth Rudd, October 11

Fire won’t wait. Plan your escape. It is no secret that fire is dangerous and it is fast. Having a plan set in place for every member of the household is critical in saving lives. Kids are smarter than we give them credit for, they are never too young to learn fire safety and should be included in helping to create escape plans.
