FAMILY FIRE SAFETY DAY

Saturday, October 14th

11:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.

Searstown Mall

3550 S. Washington Avenue

 

The Titusville Fire and Emergency Services Department will be presenting a Fire Safety/Fire Prevention Expo on Saturday, October 14 and we are inviting you and your family members to join us.   Scheduled are a variety of fire safety and fire prevention displays and interactive activities for the whole family in support of this year's safety message.  In addition, we will have fire truck displays and we will be accepting donations for hot dogs and drinks in support of a local burn unit. The expo will be located near the north entrance to Searstown Mall (cinema entrance). 

October 8-14th is designated as National Fire Prevention Week.  The theme this year is: "Cooking Fires--Watch What you Heat".  Why is cooking safety such an important topic?

  • Between 1999-2002, there were 114,000 reported home fires associated with cooking equipment on average per year, resulting in an annual 290 deaths and 4,380 injuries.
  • Unattended cooking is the leading cause of home cooking fires.
  • Three in 10 reported home fires start in the kitchen -- more than any other place in the home.
  • Two out of three reported home cooking fires start with the range or stove.
  • Electric ranges or stoves have a higher risk of fires, injuries and property damage, compared to gas ranges or stoves, but gas ranges or stoves have a higher risk of fire deaths.

Please join our fire fighters on October 14 and learn how you and your family can be safer in the kitchen.  For further information, please contact Life Safety Specialist Reggie Belle at 383-5708.
