Fire Prevention Week is Oct. 7th - 13th, 2018. Don't forget to change your batteries in your smoke detectors and make sure they are working properly.

During National Fire Prevention Week, October 7th - 13th, 2018 attention is focused on promoting fire safety and prevention, however we should practice fire safety all year long. Many potential fire hazards go undetected because people simply do not take steps to fireproof their home.

Many bedroom fires are caused by misuse or poor maintenance of electrical devices, careless use of candles, smoking in bed, and children playing with matches and lighters. Most potential hazards can be addressed with a little common sense. For example, be sure to keep flammable items like bedding, clothes and curtains at least three feet away from portable heaters or lit candles, and never smoke in bed. Also, items like appliances or electric blankets should not be operated if they have frayed power cords, and electrical outlets should never be overloaded. 


Any questions call the Atlantic Fire Department at 712-243-2146.
