Fire Prevention Week


The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) provides a series of informational fire safety fact sheets. The Lake County Sheriff's Office is listing each of the sheets and recommends reviewing the fire safety fact sheets with family members.

The NFPA reminds us to learn two ways out of every room. In a fire, you may have only minutes to escape safely once the smoke alarm sounds. Knowing how to use that time wisely takes planning and practice. Develop an escape plan with all members of your family. Check out a sample home escape plan.

Below are NFPA fire safety tips. Take time to review them with your family and practice your fire drills at home.
