Fire Prevention Week is Oct. 7 to 13http://inn.scdsb.on.ca/about-us/news/school-news/401Fire Prevention Week is Oct. 7 to 13<p>​</p><p>This year's Fire Prevention Week theme focuses on three fundamental actions people can take to be fire-safe:</p><ul style="list-style-type:disc;"><li>LOOK for places fire could start. Take a good look around your home. Identify potential fire hazards and take care of them.</li><li>LISTEN for the sound of the smoke alarm. You could have only minutes to escape safely once the smoke alarm sounds. Go to your outside meeting place, which should be a safe distance from the home and where everyone should know to meet.</li></ul><p>LEARN two ways out of every room and make sure all doors and windows leading outside open easily and are free of clutter.<br></p><p><br></p>
