Happy Fire Prevention Week 2010!
This year's Fire Prevention Week Theme is "Smoke Alarms: a sound you can live with". This is an important reminder on what we need to do, and teach our children to do, when the smoke alarm goes off.
Does your home have working smoke detectors? Have you checked them regularly?
Do your children know what to do if the alarm goes off?
Do you have a Fire Drill or Fire Safety plan at your workplace?
These are all important things to do and practice. To help you out with these the National Fire Protection Association has a very good website with tips, tools and information you can download to help you with your Fire Safety plan.
Today I'm going to provide you with this link to a fun Smoke Detector Inspection Checklist you can use at your home. As you test your smoke detectors, involve your children.
