FIRE PREVENTION — Fire Prevention Month is underway and Fire Prevention Week (Oct. 7-13) is taking place this week.

The Firemen’s Association of the State of New York is urging New Yorkers to take note of basic fire safety tips and advice that can help save lives. In particular, FASNY asks that all New Yorkers ensure their smoke alarms are in proper working order so that they, and their families, are protected against fires. FASNY specifically encourages New Yorkers to install smoke alarms equipped with sealed-in, non-removable batteries that last for 10 years. These alarms do not require any battery changes during their lifespan and are nearly impossible to disable.

Most fatal fires happen between midnight and 8 a.m., and it takes only a few moments for fire to spread through a house.

Occupants of a burning home may only have minutes to escape before being overcome by the smoke and flames. Working smoke alarms help ensure that people are awakened and able to take advantage of those precious minutes.
