Fire Prevention Week 2009

Cooking is the leading cause of residential structure fires and injuries. Unattended cooking is the leading factor contributing to cooking-related fires.

For these reasons and many others, the theme for Fire Prevention Week, October 4-10, 2009 is Stay Fire Smart! Don’t Get Burned!  In addition to cooking fires, a special emphasis is placed on burn awareness and prevention and keeping homes fire safe.

For tips you can follow to stay fire smart, visit this month's Focus on Fire Safety on the USFA's Web site.

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.
