The Fire and Life Safety Communicators Initiative is a collaboration among the fire and the emergency medical services to speak with “one voice” on fire and life safety. We believe that by working together to present consistent messages, we can begin to teach the public the importance of safety and encourage them to take actions to make themselves, their loved ones and their communities safer from fire and other hazards. Through these actions, lives will be saved.
Together we can inspire and empower our communities to Step Up for Fire Safety.
“Step Up for Fire Safety” 2023 messaging calendar
Join with other fire and life safety communicators in promoting these monthly messages in your community.
- If you sleep with the bedroom door closed, install smoke alarms inside and outside the bedroom.
- For the best protection, make sure all smoke alarms are interconnected. When one smoke alarm sounds, they all sound.
Fire Prevention Week
Keep an eye on what you fry; stand by your pan. Unattended cooking is the number one cause of home cooking fires.
- Stay in the kitchen while you are frying, boiling, grilling or broiling food.
- If you leave the kitchen for even a short period of time, turn off the stove.
