Green Meadows West neighbors are encouraged to review fire safety plans and preparations during National Fire Prevention Week, Oct. 6-12, 2013. In 2008, a house in the neighborhood's Plat 9 was destroyed by fire, killing one person.
Here are some quick projects to help make your family safer:
- Replace smoke alarm batteries and test alarms.
- Install new or inspect existing fire extinguishers.
- Make, practice, and review fire-escape plans with children.
This year's National Fire Prevention Week theme focuses on kitchen safety, including cooking, scald prevention, and microwave oven safety. A 50-second on-line video starring Sparky the Fire Dog and his Aunt Dotty discusses kitchen safety here.
