Stay Smart Don’t Get Burned
Fire Prevention Week 2009 focuses on burn awareness and prevention, as well as keeping homes safe from the leading causes of home fires.
Testing the water before putting a child in the bath may sound like common sense. Wearing short or close-fitting sleeves when cooking on the stovetop may show foresight. This and other simple actions may be all it takes to prevent devastating burns.
From October 4-10, fire and life safety educators across the country will bring these important safety messages to their communities, showing them simple ways they can “Stay Fire Smart! Don’t Get Burned.”
