Do you have a working smoke detector in your home?
This year we are focusing our fire prevention effort on ensuring there are working smoke detectors in the homes of our community.
If you do not have working smoke detectors in your home, or if you do not have working smoke detectors in your bedrooms, please let us know. We have received a couple of small grants to purchase smoke detectors, and we will come to your home to discuss fire escape planning with you and your family, and install the grant funded smoke detectors.
If you are in need, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
OCTOBER IS FIRE PREVENTION MONTH!!
This year, fire departments across the country, including your department here in Buxton, will partner with the National Fire Protection Association, to spread the word about the need for WORKING smoke detectors inside, and outside our bedrooms. Aside from subtle reminders to change the batteries in your smoke detector when you set your clocks for daylight savings time, it is important to ensure that your home is properly covered with smoke detectors in case of a fire. Below is a checklist for you to use in your home. Take a second and run through the list with your family. You can also find more information on NFPA’s Website at NFPA.org and the form can be found in PDF format for easier printing.
Aside from the “HEAR THE BEEP WHERE YOU SLEEP” message, our members will visit daycares and schools in the community. If you are interested in having us come visit your daycare or school, or you would like to bring your class to the fire station, please email Brianna Freeman at email@example.com or Chief Schools at firstname.lastname@example.org .
