2016 Fire Prevention Week

Oct 06, 2016

Fire Prevention Week returns in 2016, and Delta Fire & Emergency Service is promoting the theme of "Don't Wait - Check the Date!", reminding Delta residents to check the date of their smoke alarms and replace them every ten years. 

This year marks the final year of the three-year effort to educate the public about basic (but essential) elements of smoke alarm safety. 

This awareness campaign is based upon information gathered by the National Fire Protections Association that shows that the public has many misconceptions about smoke alarms, including the dangers posed by using outdated smoke alarms. 

As in previous years, this kicks off the Delta Fire Department's school program, including the annual Fire Chief for the Day contest.
