Lawton Fire Marshal speaks on importance of Fire Prevention Week

Every second counts: Fire prevention week

It is therefore essential that every home have a home fire escape plan so that everyone in the home knows what to do when there is a fire.

One of the most basic but vital elements of home fire safety is having a home escape plan that everyone in the household has practiced. It's for this reason the Pocatello Fire Department is joining with the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) to tell residents "Every Second Counts: Plan 2 Ways Out!" "We recommend that you stand by your pan, you look while you cook, watch what you heat, and be still by the grill", said Burt.

Children will get to tour the house and learn about potential hazards in the home, and techniques like staying clear of a hot stove, and practice evacuating out of the house.

¬ďA fire escape plan needs to be practical and easy for your family to follow.

"It's important to have two ways out of the home in the event of fire in case one way gets blocked", said Jack Burt, assistant deputy fire chief.

"One of our priorities at ESFI is to educate the public about the technology that can prevent fires before they start".

Walgreens Boots Alliance Inc (WBA) EPS Estimated At $1.22
The institutional investor owned 17,796 shares of the pharmacy operator's stock after selling 1,879 shares during the quarter. Finally, Guardian Life Insurance Co. of America raised its stake in Walgreens Boots Alliance by 0.7% during the 1st quarter.

The event is part of National Fire Prevention Week, which started October 8 with a similar event at the Alton Fire Department.

ESFI continues to develop resources for at-risk communities living in older homes without updated fire prevention technology. Firefighters also said, parents need to be prepared by making sure they have working fire alarms and two different escape routes in their home.

There will be a citywide fire drill in Monroe at 9:00 this morning. Never go back inside a burning building. Homeowners or renters can call their local Red Cross chapter to schedule an appointment, and our gracious volunteers will come to their home to install up to three, free smoke alarms.

According to McEvoy, there's usually a short list of things that he says will set off the fire alarms on campus.

Per the fire code, smoke detectors should be placed on every level of a home, in hallways leading to bedrooms, and in every bedroom.

"No matter where you're at in that home, whether you're a child, an elderly person or anybody else in the home, they should know if that doors blocked, I can go out this door or that window". We really believe that fire safety saves lives in the long run.
