CFD opens its doors for Fire Prevention Week

Posted: Updated:

Fire Prevention Week kicks off on Monday.

This year's theme, Have 2 Ways Out, focuses on the importance of having a fire escape plan in place.

The Cincinnati Fire Department says you may have just a few minutes to escape your home once fire ignites before the home is engulfed in smoke and flames. The department suggests having two ways out for the whole family to escape quickly when the smoke alarm sounds.

The public is invited to visit any of the 26 Cincinnati Fire stations for Fire Prevention Week from Oct. 7 to Oct. 13. Each fire house will be distributing smoke alarms and batteries.

On Oct. 13, the doors will open for citizens to meet local firefighters at Cincinnati Fire Department. The event will run from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. and will include snacks, refreshments and fun fire safety materials for kids.
