October Is National Fire Safety Month

As it is now October, we like to inform you that it is National Fire Safety Month. LYVFD has already had a large number of request to provide fire safety education at a multitude of events. If you would like for us to attend your event please request us early under the Public Education page.

Here are just a few tips for this month.

- Dont ever leave food unattended while cooking.

- Never leave candles burning while you leave for any period of time.

- Check your smoke detectors every month. When the time changes for the season it is a good idea to change the batteries in your smoke detectors.

- Keep ignition sources out of the reach of children i,e (lighters, matches, candles)

-Always have a fire escape plan, make sure everyone knows the plan well. A good plan has, escape routes, gathering locations and emergency contacts to notify authorities and family in case of a fire. Educate your kids if they are trapped in a fire to break the windows of their bedrooms and throw toys out of the window. When firefighters see toys we like to investigate where they came from. Toys mean Tots to us. Just another helpful tip.

Little York Fire Department would like to wish everyone a very safe October. For any specific questions feel free to contact or stop by one of our stations.
