The 2018 theme for Fire Prevention Week is Look. Listen. Learn. Be aware. Fire can happen anywhere. Yesterday, the Saskatoon Fire Department shared information on smoke alarms in your home and why it’s important to LISTEN for its sound; smoke alarms are also a key component to an effective and reliable home escape plan. Home escape planning is critical in ensuring you are prepared to safely exit your home in the event of an emergency; be sure to LEARN the details of your home escape plan and practice it during the day, as well as at night.
