Alpine Fire Protection District Encourages Residents to “Plan and Practice and Escape” Fire Safety during National Fire Prevention Week! October 6-12, 2019!

Not Every Hero Wears a Cape! Alpine Fire Protection District Encourages Residents to “Plan and Practice and Escape” Fire Safety during National Fire Prevention Week October 6-12, 2019!

The Alpine Fire Protection District in collaboration with the National Fire Protection Agency is spreading the word about Fire Prevention Week. This year’s theme is “Plan and Practice your Escape!” The goal through this public message to educate the community to create a plan. Start with a home escape plan and practice it monthly, during the day and at night so it becomes muscle memory. Have an outside meeting place that your family knows where to go and to stay at, and have a communication plan in place. PRACTICE- review your plan over and make sure things have not changed. Parents please practice E.D.I.T.H. or Exit Drills In The Home with your children. Have them show you the plan and work in helping them execute the plan. Take turns running this plan so everyone knows where to go when leaving the home.

This year the Alpine Fire Protection District is proud to once again in partner with Alpine Schools during the month of October to teach fire safety. Activities include showcasing the fire engine to the students at Boulder Oaks and Shadow Hills Elementary Schools. We also invite all 1st graders to a fire station tour, this year we have almost 200 students visiting. In addition we will teach the 3 P’s of Fire Safety to all kindergarteners and 2nd graders. Lastly, we have invite Boulder Oaks, Shadow Hills and Joan MacQueen schools to participate in a poster coloring contest. The top winning students at each grade level are invited to the fire station for a pizza and ice cream lunch party with the firefighters. All winning posters are displayed on our social media page after the lunch for the community to view.

Also – Just a reminder to all residents that we are hosting our annual Open House at the fire station on October 26 from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm. All are invited to come and visit the fire station, see the equipment up close and meet your firefighters. For more info please see our website https://www.alpinefire.org.
