  • Plan two ways out in case of fire

The as Fire Prevention Week begins, the National Fire Protection Association wants to help people double their chances of escaping from a burning home. Governor Rauner proclaimed October 8 through October 14 as Fire Prevention Week in IL to encourage residents to learn and prepare for emergency situations. From 1927's Why This Mad Sacrifice to Fire to this year's Every Second Counts: Plan 2 Ways Out, Fire Prevention Week has carried an annual theme.

"Every second counts, plan two ways out". Smoke detectors are pretty cheap, but for those who can't afford them, fire companies in the county will install them for you.

Once you get outside, stay outside.

The public is invited to celebrate this month the official opening of the city's fourth fire station as well as a new home for the Enterprise Fire Department's Central Headquarters.

Hamburgers, hot dogs and ice cream will be provided courtesy of the Fire Department and Auxiliary. "So our firefighters will go out and inspect the site, let you know about the burn policies and procedures".

For the Township of Langley Fire Department, it is an opportunity to reinforce the need for all residents to have and practise an escape plan.

Van Gorkom says to not only check batteries this time of the year, but to look at the age of the units to ensure they are up-to-date. Plus, fire alarms are also CARBON MONOXIDE alarms! "These factors make home escape planning and practice critical".

The El Dorado Fire Department will kick off Fire Prevention Week from noon until 3 p.m. today with an open house at Central Fire Station, 204 N. West Ave., next to City Hall.

Lowe cautions that smoke is the leading killer in house fires and so working smoke detectors become the first line of defense.

Smoke alarms: Make sure you have smoke alarms outside or inside every sleeping room, and make sure the alarms are working. One drill should take place during the day, and another at night.

"There are 201 emergency plans for facilities all around Crawford County - from schools and nursing homes to factories", Clark said.
