Look. Listen. Learn.

The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) released the theme for Fire Prevention Week 2018, "Look. Listen. Learn. Be aware. Fire can happen anywhere."

"LOOK" for places fire could start. Take a good look around your home. Identify potential fire hazards and take care of them.

"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 meet.

"LEARN" two ways out of every room and make sure all doors and windows leading outside open easily and are free of clutter.

The new Fire Prevention Week website will be launched in late July.
