It’s Almost Fire Prevention Week!

It's Almost Fire Prevention Week!Observe Fire Prevention Week by checking your smoke alarms.

For over two decades, the National Fire Protection Association has commemorated Fire Prevention Week in an effort to reduce the number of preventable fire deaths that occur each year. This year, this important week falls from October 4th to October 10th.

This year, the theme is, “Hear the beep where you sleep.” The ultimate goal is to make sure that every room of your home is near enough to a smoke alarm that it would wake people in a deep sleep.

Almost half of home fire deaths happen between 11:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. If we can work together to make sure every home has enough working smoke alarms, we can help significantly reduce that statistic. If you have a working smoke alarm in your home where you can hear it, you slash your risk of dying in a reported fire in half!

During this week, check your smoke alarms and make sure they can be heard in every room of your house.

After you and your family get to safety, you shouldn’t have to worry about the damage a fire will do to your home. The good news is you won’t have to with the right Carlisle, PA homeowners insurance policy! For more information, contact Miller Insurance Associates.
