MEMORANDUM

Posted: September 8, 2016 03:04 PM
From: Representative Neal P. Goodman
To: All House members
Subject: October as Pennsylvania Fire Prevention Month and October 9-15, 2016, as National Fire Prevention Week
 
In the near future, I will introduce a resolution designating October as "Pennsylvania Fire Prevention Month" and observing the week of October 9-15, 2016, as "National Fire Prevention Week."

Each year since 1922, Fire Prevention Week is observed across the nation to remind people of fire dangers in their homes and communities, as well as to educate the public about simple fire prevention steps to make everyone safer. It is also an opportunity to recognize the efforts of all firefighters, fire service agencies, and other first responders in preventing and combating fire dangers.

This year’s Fire Prevention Week campaign, “Don’t Wait – Check the Date! Replace Smoke Alarms Every 10 Years,” represents the final year of a three-year effort to educate the public about basic but essential elements of smoke alarm safety. Only a small percentage of people know how old their smoke alarms are, or how often they need to be replaced. As a result, this year’s efforts focus on the following key messages:
  • Smoke alarms should be replaced every 10 years.
  • Make sure you know how old all the smoke alarms are in your home.
  • To find out how old a smoke alarm is, look at the date of manufacture on the back of the alarm; the alarm should be replaced 10 years from that date.
