Fire Prevention Week is held October 7-13. The Waukee Fire Department is working to educate the public about this year’s Fire Prevention Week™ campaign: “Look. Listen. Learn. Be aware. Fire can happen anywhere™.” Look for places fire could start. Listen for the sound of the smoke alarm. Learn two ways out of every room. Through school visits, social media posts and more, the Department aims to offer safety tips about home fire prevention and safety.
Every year, the majority of fire deaths in North America happen at home. Today’s home fires burn faster than ever. In a typical home fire, you may have as little as one to two minutes to escape safely from the time the smoke alarm sounds. Knowing how to use that time wisely takes planning and practice.
