  • Plan two ways out in case of fire

One way to do that is to make sure you have working smoke detectors, and if they're battery-operated their batteries are fresh. That's the message of this year's National Fire Prevention Week, which begins today through October 14.

According to Henderson Fire Department's new Fire Prevention Officer Lee Edmonds, this year's theme is "Every Second Counts: Plan Two Ways Out!".

Sills said at home, it is important for parents to talk to their children about fire safety and practice some fire drills, similar to what would be done in a school.

According to the National Fire Prevention Association, this week was chosen because of the Great Chicago Fire that began October 8, 1871 and did most of its damage October 9. He said each year the open firehouses have typically brought in about 500 visitors each Fire Prevention Week.

"Were going to go over stop, drop and roll, stay low in smoke and we also have information for the adults like hurricane preparedness, home safety tips, things of that nature", Panama City Fire Department Division Chief Kent Taylor said. In addition to a home escape plan, homes must have working smoke alarms. "We see that a lot - if a door is closed - it will keep a lot of the heat and the smoke in the unoccupied space to where it could give you another five minutes or so to get out". Installation of the alarms also is free, he said. "The next step then is what happens after that smoke detector goes off".

As we observe Fire Prevention Week, we pray for the Federal, State, local, and tribal responders battling the wildfires in the West and around the country and for all those who have lost their homes to fires. Conduct one at night and one during the day with everyone in your home, and practice using different exit paths.
