Promoting awareness through Fire Prevention Week October 4-10

FPW15InfographicOctober 5, 2015 - Kawartha Lakes Fire Rescue Service is reminding the community that October 4 to 10 is Fire Prevention Week.

“This year’s theme is ‘Hear the Beep where you Sleep’,” said Fire Chief Mark Pankhurst. “We are encouraging home owners and residents to make sure they have working smoke alarms that are audible in every bedroom.”

Half of home fire deaths result from fires reported between 11 p.m. and 7 a.m. when most people are asleep yet only one in five home fires were reported during these hours.

“Statistics show that one quarter of home fire deaths were caused by fires that started in the bedroom,” said Chief Pankhurst. “Another quarter resulted from fires in the living room, family room or den. Three out of five home fire deaths happen from fires in homes with no smoke alarms or no working smoke alarms.”
