Fire Prevention Week 2018

“Look. Listen. Learn. Be aware. Fire can happen anywhere,” ... That is this year's Fire Prevention Week's message. The Patterson Fire Department will be visiting local elementary schools during the week of October 8th to promote fire safety in the home.

Look...
Look for places fire could start. Take a good look around your home. Identify potential fire hazards and take care of them.

Listen...
Listen for the sound of the smoke alarm. You could have only minutes to escape safely once the smoke alarm sounds. Go to your outside meeting place, which should be a safe distance from the home and where everyone should know to meet.

Learn...
Learn two ways out of every room and make sure all doors and windows leading outside open easily and are free of clutter.
