SERVPRO of Foxborough Honors Fire Prevention Week
The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) designates one week, Sunday, October 3rd to Saturday, October 9th, each year to share fire safety topics.
The goal of Fire Prevention Month is to raise fire safety awareness but to ensure safety. In 1922, the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) named the second week of October Fire Prevention Week in commemoration of the Great Chicago Fire in 1871. (First Alert)
Fire safety awareness and education are important for families. Check your local fire department, sometimes they provide education to local communities.
The NFPA's 2021 campaign for Fire Safety Month is "Learn The Sounds of Fire Safety. (NFPA)"
Here are some ways to help protect your home and family:
- Install smoke and carbon monoxide alarms
- Have fire extinguishers at home
- Have an emergency plan
- Have local numbers handy (insurance, restoration, doctors, vet, etc).
- Test alarms
- Change the batteries
- Know how to use a fire extinguisher
Unattended cooking is the #1 cause of home fires. (First Alert)
Practice home safety, so you are prepared should a fire arise.
SERVPRO of Foxborough is available 24/7 including holidays and weekends to assist you with any fire damage “Like it never even happened.”
