This week is National Fire Prevention Week. As we make our many stops at our local schools and day care centers we would like to share the origins of how and why this week came to be.
Since 1922, the NFPA has sponsored the public observance of Fire Prevention Week. In 1925, President Calvin Coolidge proclaimed Fire Prevention Week a national observance, making it the longest-running public health observance in our country. During Fire Prevention Week, children, adults, and teachers learn how to stay safe in case of a fire. Firefighters provide lifesaving public education in an effort to drastically decrease casualties caused by fires.
Fire Prevention Week is observed each year during the week of October 9th in commemoration of the Great Chicago Fire, which began on October 8, 1871, and caused devastating damage. This horrific conflagration killed more than 250 people, left 100,000 homeless, destroyed more than 17,400 structures, and burned more than 2,000 acres of land.The Robbinsville Township Fire Department visited the library today during Story Time for Fire Prevention week! The Firefighters talked about how they are our friends and are there to help. They dressed up in their gear and then the children got to climb inside and explore the truck. Each child received a helmet, too! ... See MoreSee Less

October is here! This month brings pumpkins, ghosts, goblins and National Fire Prevention Week. This year Fire Prevention Week runs from October 7th to the 13th and the theme is "LOOK, LISTEN, LEARN"
“LOOK” for places fire could start. Take a good look around your home. Identify potential fire hazards and take care of them.
“LISTEN” for the sound of the smoke alarm. You could have only minutes to escape safely once the smoke alarm sounds. Go to your outside meeting place, which should be a safe distance from the home and where everyone should know to meet.
“LEARN” two ways out of every room and make sure all doors and windows leading outside open easily and are free of clutter. ... See MoreSee Less

Training today with the griphoist. So you ask what is a griphoist?
The griphoist is a hand-operated, manual portable hoist using wire rope for heavy-duty work. It is used in industry to lift, pull, or transfer loads from one position to another. In the fire service, the griphoist is used to lift a load, stabilize a load, and move a load from one location to another.
**NOTE: No police officers were harmed during the performance of this training evolution** ... See MoreSee Less

The first picture is the result of a dryer vent cleaning at the home of a local resident. Dryer lint is a significant fire hazard and can cause the total destruction of your home. The accumulation of lint in the vent pipe can ignite during the use of your dryer and cause a fire to advance rapidly.
Clean (or have cleaned) your dryer vent AT LEAST once every year. ... See MoreSee Less
