The National Fire Prevention Association has designated Oct. 9-15 as Fire Prevention Week, an annual observance now in its 100th year that will kick off with National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Weekend on Oct. 8-9, a tribute to all firefighters who have died in the line of duty.
Mayor Damon Seils has proclaimed the observance locally.
“I encourage all residents to ensure everyone in their home understands the sounds of the smoke alarms and knows how to respond, to make a home fire escape plan, and to ensure their smoke alarms are working and meet the needs of all family members, including those with sensory or physical disabilities,” Mayor Seils said. “I also encourage residents to share their appreciation for Carrboro Fire-Rescue’s dedicated first responders and to learn more about the community risk reduction services the department provides.”
