October 8 – 14, 2023 is Fire Prevention Week.
This year’s theme is “Cooking safety starts with you! Did you know that cooking fires are the leading cause of home fires and home fire injuries? When you are using any appliance in your kitchen, remain in the kitchen and know where you keep your fire extinguisher. Be mindful of children and not to allow them near any hot appliances.
As always, check your smoke alarms and practice fire drills on a monthly basis.
