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.

For more information on National Preparedness Month, including tips on preparing for a fire emergency, visit www.usfa.fema.gov/citizens/focus/


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.
