While most firefighters know that October is the "designated" month for fire prevention programs, now is a great time, as well.
We can educate our communities about the need for keep live trees moist and green, inspecting lighting strings carefully, not overloading electrical sockets, times, or extension cords and much more.
This is not a task just for those in your Fire Prevention Office, every firefighter can and should play a role in this effort, starting with your own family and friends.
Let's teach everyone to "Live for the Holidays, Not Die Because of Them!"
Best wishes to all for a very happy and safe holiday season!
