Fire department open house focuses on fire prevention

Plan two ways out in case of fire

What to do if smoke alarm sounds in the middle of the night

Fire Departments and the American Red Cross, both hosting campaigns to encourage fire safety, you can help mitigate your risk of becoming a victim in a few simple ways.

They visited for an open house promoting Fire Prevention Week that runs October 8-14. The key message this year is to come up with two ways to make it out of every room in your house.

Edmonds said this is the first time in the past couple of years that the fire department has held the open house event, but says that this year they chose to bring it back to help increase community relations and involvement.
