Fire Prevention Week, Cooking safety starts with YOU. Pay attention to fire prevention

By Commissioner Steven Freeman
October 8, 2023

The Iselin Chemical Hook and Ladder Volunteer Fire Department is teaming up with the National Fire Protection Association® (NFPA®)—to celebrate the 101st. anniversary of Fire Prevention Week TM (FPW), October 8-14, 2023. This year’s FPW campaign, “Cooking safety starts with YOU. Pay attention to fire prevention", works to educate everyone about simple but important actions they can take to keep themselves and those around them safe from kitchen fires.

“Today’s homes burn faster than ever. You may have as little as two minutes (or even less time) to safely escape a home fire from the time the smoke alarm sounds. Your ability to get out of a home during a fire depends on early warning from smoke alarms and advance planning,” said Lorraine Carli, vice president of Outreach and Advocacy at NFPA.

The Iselin Chemical Hook and Ladder Volunteer Fire Fire Department encourages all residents to embrace the 2023 Fire Prevention Week theme.
It’s important for everyone to plan and practice a home fire escape. Everyone needs to be prepared in advance, so that they know what to do when the smoke alarm sounds. Given that every home is different, every home fire escape plan will also be different. Have a plan for everyone in the home. Children, older adults, and people with disabilities may need assistance to wake up and get out. Make sure that someone will help them!

The Iselin Chemical Hook and Ladder Volunteer Fire Department wants to share these key home fire escape planning tips:
• Make sure your plan meets the needs of all your family members, including those with sensory or physical disabilities.
• Smoke alarms should be installed inside every sleeping room, outside each separate sleeping area, and on every levelof your home. Smoke alarms should be interconnected so when one sounds, they all sound.
• 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, including guests. Practice at least once during the day and at night.
