Fire Prevention Week is Coming ...the Week of October 7-13, 2007

"Practice Your Escape Plan!" is the theme of Fire Prevention Week 2007. It's not enough to have a home fire escape plan. To escape safely, you've got to make sure that everyone in the home has practiced the plan.

As part of the week, everyone is welcome to participate in the Great American Fire Drill. For more information and material, please visit http://www.nfpa.org/displayContent.asp?categoryID=1444. For a kid-friendly site, you can go to http://sparky.org/form/ to report that you and your family participated.

It's a great way to set the foundation of a culture of preparedness!
