This past Saturday, six volunteers from the Roswell Fire Department CERT collected donations to benefit the Roswell and Alpharetta public safety foundations. Thank you to all that donated. As thank you, Carl Black Roswell Buick GMC provided CROCK FEST concert tickets to the volunteers.
In a fire, seconds count. Seconds can mean the difference between residents of our community escaping safely from a fire or having their lives end in tragedy. That’s why this year’s Fire Prevention Week theme: “Every Second Counts: Plan 2 Ways Out!” is so important. It reinforces why everyone needs to have an escape plan. Here’s this year’s key campaign messages: • Draw a map of your home by using FPW 2017 Escape Plan Grid with all members of your household, marking two exits from each room and a path to the outside from each exit. • Practice your home fire drill twice a year. Conduct one at night and one during the day with everyone in your home, and practice using different ways out. • Teach children how to escape on their own in case you can’t help them. • Make sure the number of your home is clearly marked and easy for the fire department to find. • Close doors behind you as you leave – this may slow the spread of smoke, heat, and fire. • Once you get outside, stay outside. Never go back inside a burning building. The FPW 2017 Escape Plan Grid can be found at: http://www.nfpa.org/-/media/Files/Public-Education/Campaigns/fire-prevention-week/fpw17/FPW17EscapePlanGrid.ashx?la=en&hash=27EB2D7A4ADB1B9D471F72466D68624D98BF692B
For the fire service, every week is Fire Prevention Week. This year Fire Prevention Week begins October 8th and ends October 14th. The theme this year is Every Second Counts, Plan 2 Ways Out! Everyone should have two escape routes from each room, especially bedrooms. Are your escape routes ready?
