Look. Listen. Learn.
Be aware. Fire can happen anywhere.

National Fire Prevention Week is Oct 7-13. During this time, families are encouraged to make fire prevention and emergency preparation a priority. There are three essential steps to reduce the likelihood of having a fire:

Look – for places fire could start. Look inside and outside of your home for potential fire hazards and take care of them.

Listen – for the sound of the smoke alarm. Remember you may only have a couple of minutes to escape safely. Go to your outside meeting place, which should be a safe distance from the home. Practice fire drills. It is important for everyone to recognize the sound of your smoke alarms.

Learn – two ways out of every room and make sure all doors and windows leading outside open easily and the area is free of clutter.

Learn how to create a fire escape plan at www.burnsville.org/firesafety.
