"We have them stop drop and roll if their clothes would catch on fire, and all that other stuff that we learned as children that they can bring home to mom and dad", says Capt. Brian Thomson, De Pere Fire Rescue. Practice, Practice, Practice, and as your buildings change or homes change, make sure all your fire and life safety plans also change. Parents and their children should recognize the sound of the smoke alarm and immediately get out of the house and assemble at a pre-determined location, he said.

Traditionally, the West Hartford Fire Department hosts an open house Monday through Friday - one at each of the town's five fire stations - during the week and invites the public to learn about fire safety and interact with local firefighters. Sinsigalli said the scale back would not impede on the department's education outreach and involvement in West Hartford classrooms. All residents are encouraged to participate in the City-wide fire drill. "So our firefighters will go out and inspect the site, let you know about the burn policies and procedures". "That's why we're making a concerted effort to educate MA residents about the importance of planning and practicing a home escape plan that everyone knows".

October 07-Students who have grown accustomed to visiting the local fire station, clambering onto big red firetrucks and leaving with a plastic helmet in hand during National Fire Prevention Week won't have as many options in this year.

In a news release on September 27, Lorraine Carli with the NFPA wrote that modern home construction, with more open spaces and unprotected lightweight construction, contributes to an increased rate at which home fires burn. He recommends having an escape plan, as well as practicing it. "We see that a lot - if a door is closed - it will keep a lot of the heat and the smoke in the unoccupied space to where it could give you another five minutes or so to get out".

McDonald's offers a sweet surprise for "obsauced" fans
Fewer than 1,000 restaurants across the United States will take part in the sauce and poster promotion, according to McDonald's . It was a big hit for McDonald's in 1998, when it was available as a promotional tie-in to the Disney movie, " Mulan ".

Make sure the house number is clearly marked and easy for the fire department to find. Carbon Monoxide detectors are also available.

The El Dorado Fire Department will kick off Fire Prevention Week from noon until 3 p.m. today with an open house at Central Fire Station, 204 N. West Ave., next to City Hall.

Practice: Fire officials said it's good to practice one during the day and one at night. "One of those homework things is check the batteries in your smoke detectors".

During the week, and the whole month of October, the Henderson Fire Department will be visiting Vance County Schools to speak to kids about fire safety, as well as going from door to door asking to perform free home fire inspections.
