Fire Prevention Week

Fire Prevention Week
Posted on 10/11/2022

West Metro Fire-Rescue District is celebrating the 100th anniversary of Fire Prevention Week, Oct. 9-15, 2022. This year’s campaign, “Fire won’t wait. Plan your escape,” works to educate everyone about simple but necessary actions they can take to keep themselves and those around them safe from home fires.

  • Make sure your plan meets the needs of all your family members, including those with sensory or physical disabilities.
  • Install smoke alarms inside every sleeping room, outside each separate sleeping area, and on every level of your home. Smoke alarms should be interconnected so that when one sounds, they all sound.
  • Know at least two ways out of every room, if possible. Make sure all doors and windows open easily.
  • Have a meeting place a safe distance from your home where everyone should meet.
  • Practice your home fire drill at least twice a year with everyone in the household, including guests.
  • Practice at least once during the day and at night.
