Focus on Fire Safety: National Preparedness Month
This September marks the ninth annual National Preparedness Month. This year’s theme is “Pledge to Prepare - Awareness to Action”. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is asking the public -- individuals, business, and organizations -- to take specific action steps by doing at least one of the following:
Learn about emergency hazards - including home fires - and their appropriate responses
Make a communications plan
Build an emergency kit
Get involved in preparedness in their community.

The United States Fire Administration recommends everyone should have a comprehensive fire protection plan that includes smoke alarms, residential sprinklers, and practicing a home fire escape plan.
