National Fire Prevention Week is here and Newport Fire Department is getting involved by promoting fire safety messaging and by hosting a “Fire Prevention Family Day” at Easton’s Beach on Sunday, October 14th from 11 am to 3 pm.

National Fire Prevention Week is observed in the United States and Canada, during the week in which October 9 falls. In 2018, that’s October 7th – 13th. In the United States, the first Presidential proclamation of Fire Prevention Week was made in 1925 by President Calvin Coolidge.

This year’s Fire Prevention Message is;

  • LOOK For Places Fire Could Start
  • LISTEN For the Sound of Smoke Alarms
  • LEARN Two Ways Out of Every Room

and join the thousands who wake up with us daily.

 

Past Fire Prevention Messages that still remain relevant today, include;

  • Plan your escape route
  • Test your smoke alarms (two times a year)
  • Get low, go and don’t go back in (smoke rises to ceiling)
  • Have a meeting place
  • Don’t play with fire
  • Stop drop and roll
  • Know two ways out

 

Newport Fire Department invites the public to join them at their 2018 Fire Prevention Family Day at Easton’s Beach on Sunday, October 14th between 11 am – 3 pm.
