Fire Prevention Week 2016

This year’s Fire Prevention Week campaign, “Don’t Wait – Check the Date! Replace Smoke Alarms Every 10 Years,” represents the final year of our three-year effort to educate the public about basic but essential elements of smoke alarm safety.
Why focus on smoke alarms three years in a row? Because NFPA’s survey data shows that the public has many misconceptions about smoke alarms, which may put them at increased risk in the event of a home fire. For example, only a small percentage of people know how old their smoke alarms are, or how often they need to be replaced. Read more from NFPA Journal.

As a result of those and related findings, we’re addressing smoke alarm replacement this year with a focus on these key messages:

Smoke alarms should be replaced every 10 years.
Make sure you know how old all the smoke alarms are in your home.
To find out how old a smoke alarm is, look at the date of manufacture on the back of the alarm; the alarm should be replaced 10 years from that date.

Code 3 for a Cure Foundation

Firefighters United Against Cancer

As Firefighters we know and understand that we face a greater risk of cancer. As a Fire Department we know and understand all too well the pain and suffering cancer brings. Six years ago we said goodbye to two esteemed members who lost their battle with cancer. Since that time we have partnered with the Code 3 For a Cure Foundation — an organization that helps firefighters who are battling cancer, and also brings attention to the issue of firefighter cancer. Please visit their website, and consider supporting their mission. Code 3 for a Cure Foundation
