Focus on Fire Safety: Emergency Preparedness

September 2009 marks the sixth annual National Preparedness Month. This year’s focus is on changing perceptions about emergency preparedness and helping Americans understand what it truly means to be Ready.

When preparing for a possible emergency situation, it’s important to prepare an emergency supply kit that includes basic needs for survival, develop a family emergency plan, and be informed about the different types of emergencies that may occur where you live and the appropriate ways to respond to them.

In most types of disaster related emergencies, the risk of fire is increased due to loose electrical wires, flooding, broken gas lines, or the lack of electricity.

Be fire wise … Prepare, Plan and Stay Informed!

The United States Fire Administration recommends everyone should have a comprehensive fire protection plan that includes smoke alarms, residential sprinklers, and practicing a home fire escape plan.
