Fire Prevention Week

Fire Prevention Week

October 8th through October 14th

In a matter of seconds, the difference can be made for residents escaping a community safely or an individual protecting their life from a tragedy. Make sure you have your escape planned. Every second in these moments count. Would you be prepared?

Fire Protection Week is a very important week here at JayC Fire Equipment and we want to help reinforce why everyone needs to have an escape plan.

We want to encourage everyone to take the time to learn more!

Take action this year and please advise the following tips provided by the NFPA to make sure you and your family are prepared:

  • Draw a map of your home with all members of your household, marking two exits from each room and a path to the outside from each exit.
  • Practice your home fire drill twice a year. Conduct one at night and one during the day with everyone in your home, and practice using different ways out.
  • Teach children how to escape on their own in case you can’t help them.
  • Make sure the number of your home is clearly marked and easy for the fire department to find.
  • Close doors behind you as you leave – this may slow the spread of smoke, heat, and fire.
  • Once you get outside, stay outside. Never go back inside a burning building.

At JayC Fire Equipment, we are here to help! For more information or to make sure you are prepared, give us a call!
