• 2019 theme for this year's Fire Prevention is “Not Every Hero Wears a Cape. Plan and Practice Your Escape!”

    To protect yourself, it is important to understand the basic characteristics of fire. Fire spreads quickly; there is no time to gather valuables or make a phone call. In just two minutes, a fire can become life-threatening. In five minutes, a residence can be engulfed in flames.
    Heat and smoke from a fire can be more dangerous than the flames. Inhaling the super-hot air can sear your lungs.

    Fire produces poisonous gases that make you disoriented and drowsy. Instead of being awakened by a fire, you may fall into a deeper sleep. Asphyxiation is the leading cause of fire deaths, exceeding burns by a three-to-one ratio.
