Firefighter speaks to primary students

Thank you to Perryville's volunteer firefighters for visiting Perryville Primary Center this week to teach students about fire prevention!

October 9-15 is National Fire Prevention Week. The National Fire Protection Association recommends families follow these steps to be prepared in case of a fire:

  • Make sure your home escape plan meets the needs of all your family members.
  • Smoke alarms should be installed inside every sleeping room, outside each separate sleeping area, and on every level of your home.
  • Know at least two ways out of every room, if possible.
  • Make sure all doors and windows open easily.
  • Have an outside meeting place a safe distance from your home where everyone should meet.
  • Practice your home fire drill at least twice a year with everyone in the household.
