Did you know that 3 of every 5 home fire deaths resulted from fires in homes with no working smoke alarms?
This is something that can be changed by becoming prepared! That’s why the whole month of October is Fire Prevention Month!
Did you know that the U.S. Fire Departments responded to a fire every 23 seconds in 2015?
This is why Smoke and Fire Alarms are so important!

Do you have a Fire Extinguisher? We got this can of Tundra Fire Extinguishing Spray– I have to say- it is much easier to use than a full-sized Fire Extinguisher. It is more effective than comparably sized traditional fire extinguishers on fires including paper; wood; fabric; cooking oils and electrical fires. And, it lasts 4 times longer- who knew such a little can could do such a great job! Even my son feels comfortable using this!
In a fire, seconds count. Seconds can mean the difference between residents of our community escaping safely from a fire or having their lives end in tragedy.
That’s why this year’s Fire Prevention theme: “Every Second Counts: Plan 2 Ways Out!” is so important. It reinforces why everyone needs to have an escape plan. Here’s this year’s key campaign messages:
- Draw a map of your home by using our grid in English (PDF) or Spanish (PDF) with all members of your household, marking two exits from each room and a path to the outside from each exit.
- Practice your home fire drill twice a year. Conduct one at night and one during the day with everyone in your home, and practice using different ways out.
- Teach children how to escape on their own in case you can’t help them.
- Make sure the number of your home is clearly marked and easy for the fire department to find.
- Close doors behind you as you leave – this may slow the spread of smoke, heat, and fire.
- Once you get outside, stay outside. Never go back inside a burning building.
