   Fire Prevention Week
   As Fire Prevention Week™ approaches , the Galesburg Fire Department reminds residents that
   “Fire won’t wait . Plan your escape . ™”
   September 26 , 2022 – The Galesburg Fire Department is teaming up with the National Fire Protection Association® ( NFPA® ) —to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Fire Prevention Week TM ( FPW ) , October 9 - 15 , 2022 . This year’s FPW campaign , ...... “Fire won’t wait . Plan your escape TM” ,  works to educate everyone about simple but important actions they can take to keep themselves and those around them safe from home fires .  
   “Today’s homes burn faster than ever . You may have as little as two minutes ( or even less time ) to safely escape a home fire from the time the smoke alarm sounds . Your ability to get out of a home during a fire depends on early warning from smoke alarms and advance planning , ” said Lorraine Carli , vice president of Outreach and Advocacy at NFPA .
   The Galesburg Fire Department encourages all residents to embrace the 2022 Fire Prevention Week theme .  “It’s important for everyone to plan and practice a home fire escape . Everyone needs to be prepared in advance , so that they know what to do when the smoke alarm sounds . Given that every home is different , every home fire escape plan will also be different , ” said Galesburg Fire Chief Randy Hovind . “Have a plan for everyone in the home . Children , older adults , and people with disabilities may need assistance to wake up and get out . Make sure that someone will help them!”
   The Galesburg Fire Department wants to share these key home fire escape planning tips:
   Make sure your plan meets the needs of all your family members , including those with sensory or physical disabilities .
   Smoke alarms should be installed inside every sleeping room , outside each separate sleeping area , and on every level of your home . Smoke alarms should be interconnected so when one sounds , they all sound .
   Know at least two ways out of every room , if possible . Make sure all doors and windows open easily .
   Have an outside meeting place a safe distance from your home where everyone should meet .
   Practice your home fire drill at least twice a year with everyone in the household , including guests . Practice at least once during the day and at night .
   The Galesburg Fire Department firefighters will be visiting area schools in Galesburg to talk to students about this year’s Fire Prevention Week campaign , “Fire won’t wait . Plan your escape . ”
