This past week was Fire Prevention Week. Over several days the RTFD visited many of our younger residents at our local schools and day care centers. Fire prevention is not just for children. Please take a few minutes to review what you can do to protect your family from fire. We urge you to discuss fire prevention with your children and practice your escape plan.
The Sounds of Fire Safety can protect you, and every ⏰ second ⏰ counts.
Knowing what action to take when you hear a beep or chirp from your alarm can save lives.
Always keep your alarms maintained, and always respond immediately when they alert.
Hear a beep, get on your feet! 🚨
Hear a chirp, make a change!🔋

Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarms for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing
This year our fire prevention slogan is “Learn the Sounds of Fire Safety”. Did you know that there are special smoke and carbon monoxide alarms with visual indicators for those who are deaf or hard of hearing?

🔥 It's Fire Prevention Week!

Be like Bill! ... See MoreSee Less
This year’s FPW campaign, “Learn the Sounds of Fire Safety!” works to educate everyone about the different sounds smoke and carbon monoxide alarms make.
Do you know the history of Fire Prevention Week?
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.

This week is National Fire Prevention Week.
This year’s campaign, October 3-9th, works to educate everyone about simple but important actions they can take to keep themselves and those around them safe.
The Robbinsville Township Fire Department wants to share safety tips to help you “Learn the Sounds of Fire Safety”.
• A continuous set of three loud beeps—beep, beep, beep—means smoke or fire. Get out, call 9-1-1, and stay out.
• A single chirp every 30 or 60 seconds means the battery is low and must be changed.
• All smoke alarms must be replaced after 10 years.
• Chirping that continues after the battery has been replaced means the alarm is at the end of its life and the unit must be replaced.
• Make sure your smoke and CO alarms meet the needs of all your family members, including those with sensory or physical disabilities.

Lucky to be alive. Car companies are adding more and more air bags but they need to figure out how to stop cars from bursting into flames to save lives
We saw that on the way home from my son’s hockey practice. I’m glad the driver made it… it looked very scary.
