Fire Prevention Week 2017 runs from Oct. 8 to 14. This year's theme is "Every Second Counts Plan 2 Ways Out". This year's theme reinforces the necessity of everyone having a fire escape plan. Seconds could mean the difference between escaping safely, or tragedy occurring within the home or the workplace. White Sands Missile Range Fire Department wants you to take time this Fire Prevention Week to reevaluate your home and workplace evacuation plans. The WSMR Fire Department will be visiting multiple locations throughout the community. The goal is to reach as many residents as possible, to share valuable knowledge that could save a life. Here is some important information in regards to developing your home and workplace evacuation plan.
WSMR Fire Department wants you to practice fire safety every day. Fire Prevention Week is a great opportunity to review fire practices both at home and in the workplace.
