Midway Fire Rescue crews will be out at local day cares, schools and churches all month as October is fire prevention month. This year, the NFPA is focusing on Smoke Detectors because they SAVE lives.
Help us sound the alarm that working smoke alarms save lives!
Did you know that many people don’t test their smoke alarms as often as they should? When there is a fire, smoke spreads fast. You need working smoke alarms to give you time to get out. Test yours every month!
FACT: Almost three of five (60%) of reported home fire deaths in 2007 to 2011 resulted from fires in homes with no smoke alarms or no working smoke alarms.
