What to do if smoke alarm sounds in the middle of the night

Plan two ways out in case of fire

That is the theme of this year's Fire Prevention Week, observed nationwide October 8-14.

This year's theme is "Every Second Counts: Two Ways Out".

"We're really pushing 'close before you doze.' Fire is a serious concern in our community", firefighter Jerry Smith explained. Practice, Practice, Practice, and as your buildings change or homes change, make sure all your fire and life safety plans also change.

Draw a map of home: Identify places that you and your family members can get out of.

The Falls Township Fire Company - "The Big House" - will hold a Fire Prevention Open House on Saturday, Oct. 14 from 10 a.m.to 2 p.m.at the station, 310 Yardley Avenue, Levittown.

Fire Chief Doug Sills said the department wanted to teach some preventive measures as a part of Fire Prevention Week. During the past year, the main 17,000-square-foot facility has been remodeled to adapt to the fire station's needs. Never go back into a burning or smokey building until firefighters say it's OK.

"Recognizing the impact on many residents and families in town that this fire prevention event has, the West Hartford Firefighters Association has opted to host a single Fire Prevention/Public Safety night", Vice President of the firefighter's union Joe Robidoux said. "Most fatal fires occur in the home, and I've seen the tragedy that can result when people don't get out", said State Fire Marshal Ostroskey.

Mathew Pridham said the street in front of the Firehouse will be closed for a simulated vehicle accident at 11:45 a.m., and the department's rescue unit will demonstrate how they cut open the roof and door. Install smoke alarms in every sleeping room, outside each sleeping area and on every level of the home.

One of the most common sources of fires are heaters, make sure you have those away from flammable items, like your curtains.

The Summit Fire Department will be conducting fire prevention presentations during the month of October at Summit schools, senior centers, and community events. Also, practice using different ways out. "The could be anything from planning an escape plan, checking smoke detectors and even cooking safety stuff in the house".
