Fire Prevention Week: Look. Listen. Learn.

This Fire Prevention Week, running from Oct. 7 to 13, Leduc County is supporting the National Fire Protection Association's message encouraging residents to look, listen and learn. The below tips will help you identify hazards, recognize when there is a threat and plan your escape.

LOOK
Look for places fire could start. Take a good look around your home. Identify potential fire hazards and take care of them.

LISTEN
Listen for the sound of the smoke alarm. You could have only minutes to escape safely once the smoke alarm sounds. Go to your outside meeting place, which should be a safe distance from the home and where everyone should know to meet.

LEARN
Learn two ways out of every room and make sure all doors and windows leading outside open easily and are free of clutter.
