Fire Prevention Links
Look for places fire could start. Take a good look around your home. Identify potential fire hazards and take care of them.
Listen for the sound of the smoke alarm. You could have only minutes to escape safely once the smoke alarm sounds. Go to your outside meeting place, which should be a safe distance from the home and where everyone should know to meet.
Learn two ways out of every room and make sure all doors and windows leading outside open easily and are free of clutter.
Also, Sparky the Fire Dog® has a new friend, Simon, who is helping teach this year’s FPW messages – He’s a smart, resourceful character who will join Sparky in spreading fire-safety messages to adults and children alike.
The 2018 fire-risk season has come to an end and you no longer need to check daily for permission to burn (domestic) brush or have a campfire. Although the season ended October 15th and you can burn without permission, fires can still escape your control if conditions are dry and windy. Always supervise your burning, have a water supply on site, and be careful where your burning takes place. The 2019 fire-risk season will start March 15th, 2019. Please check back daily then for permission to burn.
