December Fire Safety Resources
The U.S. Fire Administration (USFA) and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) are once again teaming up to promote winter fire safety through their campaign, “Put a Freeze on Winter Fires.” The goal of the campaign is to educate the public on increased fire risks during the winter months.
December, January and February are the leading months for home fires. Many of these fires are caused by cooking, heating and holiday decorations such as lights, Christmas trees and candles. To help you share important safety messages with your community, USFA and NFPA have created flyers and social media assets for you to share on cooking safety, holiday decorations safety, heating safety, generator safety and electrical safety.

Hurricane Preparedness Week
May 9-15, 2021
Be ready for hurricane season. Today you can determine your personal hurricane risk, find out if you live in a hurricane evacuation zone, and review/update insurance policies. You can also make a list of items to replenish hurricane emergency supplies and start thinking about how you will prepare your home for the coming hurricane season. If you live in hurricane-prone areas, you are encouraged to complete these simple preparations before hurricane season begins on June 1. Keep in mind, you may need to adjust any preparedness actions based on the latest health and safety guidelines from the CDC and your local officials.
