Fire Prevention Week

Every Second Counts, Plan 2 Ways Out

Post Date:10/06/2017 11:26 AM
Sioux City Fire Rescue will be participating in National Fire Prevention Week activities October 8-14, 2017.  This campaign reinforces why everyone needs to have an escape plan.  Draw a map of your home with all members of your household, marking two exits from each room and a path to the outside from each exit.   Practice your home fire drill twice a year.  Conduct one at night and one during the day with everyone in your home and practice using different ways out!  Once you get outside- STAY OUT!  

Toxic and deadly smoke builds rapidly if a fire occurs in your home.  Working smoke alarms and a good fire escape plan are keys to your survival.

This year’s theme is very important to Sioux City Fire Rescue.  It supports our SAFE Home Program which is a free service provided to any Sioux City resident.  This program consists of 3 components:

·         Free Home Fire and Safety Guide

·         Free home survey by trained fire personnel

·         Free smoke alarm installation

Residents can sign up for our SAFE Home Program at our Open Houses or by calling 279-6377.

We will kick off our Fire Prevention week with an Open House at all Sioux City Fire Stations.  Please join us Sunday, October 8th from 1 until 4. Take a tour of the station, learn some fire safety tips and have lunch!  Our local sponsors have donated lunch so stop in for a sandwich, chips and a cookie!  

Sioux City Fire Rescue has also started school visits.  Each year every student in Sioux City grades K-2 receives training from their local firefighters as well as a tour of rigs and equipment.  3rd grade students are able to practice what they have learned by going through our fire safety trailer.
