Please support the emergency first responders and planners in your community.

They are dedicated to you and your safety !

 

Develop  Prevention Strategies

 It's not just a good idea, it's a way of life !

 

 

Prevention: Practicing fire and life safety can be the single best thing you can do to protect yourself, your family, and public safety first responders. The fires and accidents prevented tend to go unnoticed, but these "non-incidents" can be a huge and serious contribution to your community.

 

Engineering Controls: Equipment, products, or other tools that help you control and improve your level of safety, such as fire extinguishers, smoke alarms, emergency lighting, and escape ladders, as well as automatic fire suppression systems, fire retardant paints and coatings, and house numbers.

"Support your local firefighters--practice fire prevention !"  It's not just a catch phrase, fire prevention is everyone's business. The best firefighters in the world are those that can prevent a fire from starting--and that includes you !
