Fire Prevention Open House set for Sunday 10/4/15 from 11am-2pm

Thursday, October 1, 2015

Keep your family safe with a working smoke alarm in every bedroom. "Hear the Beep Where You Sleep"; that's the message for the 2015 Fire Prevention Week. Did you know that roughly half of home fire deaths result from fires reported between 11 p.m. and 7 a.m., when most people are asleep?

The key message of this year's Fire Prevention Week campaign, October 4-10, is to install smoke alarms in every bedroom, outside each separate sleeping area, and on every level of your home, including the basement. Larger homes may need more alarms.

On Sunday October 4th from 11:00am to 2:00pm, the Halesite Fire Department invites all residents and their families to our annual Fire Prevention Open House to learn about the importance of having working smoke alarms in the home and testing them regularly. Halesite has arranged for numerous live demonstrations including fire evacuation instructions for adults and children using Huntington FD's Smoke House trailer, effective use of extinguishers with live fire, instructions on how to avoid kitchen fires, how to perform hands-only CPR, a demonstration of the "Jaws of Life" during vehicle extrication, plus tours of the firehouse, tours of our apparatus and more.

Just as in years past, this year's open house will be a great time for residents of the community and their children to learn more about fire prevention and to meet some of the men and women who volunteer as firefighters or EMT's. There will be free refreshments, contests and prizes for the kids and adults.
