Fire Prevention Week
Members of the Sioux Lookout Fire Department were at Fresh Market Foods on Oct. 10 and at Sioux Lookout Home Hardware (pictured) on Oct. 14 sharing fire safety messages.
Oct. 8 to 14 was Fire Prevention Week and this year’s theme was “Cooking safety starts with YOU.”
Fire safety tips messages related to this year’s theme can be found at https://www.nfpa.org/Events/Events/Fire-Prevention-Week/About.
As temperatures cool down and people begin to use their home heating systems, members of the Fire Department also recommended people change the batteries in their smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors and plan and practice a home fire escape plan.
