Fire Prevention Week
Monday, October 6, 2014

Members of the Salisbury Fire Department will be on the streets this entire week taking extra time to spread its fire prevention message.  Personnel will be visiting district schools and day care centers teaching local children about smoke detectors, multiple means of egress, matches/lighter safety, Stop! Drop! And Roll!, and other various aspects of fire safety.

The Fire Prevention Task Force assigned to school detail will provide a full program to district 2nd Graders, as well as provide abbreviated versions and engine displays to kindergarten and 1st Graders.  Ronad McDonald will visit the area on Tuesday 7 October and provide children with a fun-filled day of safety!

This year's theme is "Working Smoke Detectors Save Lives!"  There should be at least one working smoke detector/alarm on each level of your home. If you have an older model, please check it once a month to ensure the 9V battery and unit are working properly.  9V batteries should be exchanged during time changes in the fall and spring.  Newer sealed model detector/alarms are rated for ten years, but should still be checked each month.  If you need a smoke detector, but can't afford one, please contact your local fire department.

The SFD works very hard throughout the year to ensure its safety message is delivered to as many people as possible.  However, we cant do it alone!!  Please take time to teach your children about the dangers of playing with lighters/matches, the proper use of 9-1-1, Stop! Drop! And Roll!, and other various aspects of fire safety.  Children participate in fire drills at shcool.  Have a family night "game" and plan an exit drill at home!  Teach your children to know two ways out, in case their normal means of egress is blocked.

If you need assistance, or would like to plan a fire safety presentation, please contact the SFD at 410.548.3120 or
