Fire prevention week
Look. Listen. Learn.
Be aware. Fire can happen anywhere.
October 7 to 13 is Fire Prevention Week. Our Community Educators and Fire Inspectors will be at the Sherwood Park Mall at various times between October 9 and 13.
Look for places fire could happen and address the problems.
Take a good look around your home. Look for fire hazards and take care of them.
Listen for the sound of the smoke alarm
Smoke alarms save lives. You could have only minutes to escape safely once the smoke alarm sounds. When you hear the alarm, 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
Have a home fire escape plan and practice it with your family. Make sure all doors and windows leading outside open easily and are free of clutter.
