Exhibits on display for start of Fire Prevention Week

Plan two ways out in case of fire What to do if smoke alarm sounds in the middle of the night

In a fire, seconds count and how you use those precious moments can mean the difference between escaping safely or having lives end in tragedy.

That is the theme of this year's Fire Prevention Week, observed nationwide October 8-14. The key message this year is to come up with two ways to make it out of every room in your house.

"If you have a fire at home you may only have less than three minutes after the alarm sounds to get out safely".

CT public safety officials are urging residents to create and practice a home escape plan in the event of a fire.

"A good thing to do before the weather gets too cold, is check the date on your carbon monoxide detector, your smoke alarm".

Cambridge fire department will have a display set up at Cambridge Centre for Fire Prevention Week.

Fire Chief Doug Sills said the department wanted to teach some preventive measures as a part of Fire Prevention Week.

They also need to talk about what they what they would do and where they would go if there was a fire in their home. Never go back into a burning or smokey building until firefighters say it's OK. It is crucial to have an escape plan in place for your home.

According to spokesperson Captain Mark Nugent, the department wanted to start Fire Prevention Week in Aynor because it is one of the areas where they tend to see more fires. The Smoke Alarms will be installed in the homes of Detroit residents who meet the criteria for the department's Smoke Alarm Installation Program. Replace alarms over 10 years old.

But, a plan shouldn't just be drawn up and forgotten about - it needs to be practiced, too.

Practice your home fire escape plan at least twice a year.

One of the most common sources of fires are heaters, make sure you have those away from flammable items, like your curtains. Conduct one at night and one during the day with everyone in the home, and practice using different ways out.

Lowe cautions that smoke is the leading killer in house fires and so working smoke detectors become the first line of defense.

Wilbourne said school groups throughout October will be touring the fire station and firetrucks, as well as learning stop, drop and roll and other important fire safety tips.
