RCPD and other Fire officials discuss the importance of Fire Prevention Week Oct. 9 2017

According to a recent survey by the U.S. Fire Administration and the National Fire Prevention Association, only a small percentage of people know how old their smoke alarms are, or how often they need to be replaced.

This year's theme is "Every Second Counts - Plan Two Ways Out". Fire and smoke spread so quickly that, despite the best efforts of fire departments and fast response times, firefighters may not be able to arrive in time to rescue you and your family. Make plans to help them get out of the house. "They can check out fire trucks and police cars, they can operate a real fire hose, and it's also an educational opportunity". Other precautionary measures include checking your smoke alarms once a month, practicing proper kitchen safety, and knowing where your fire extinguisher is and how to use it.

Brandon Weeden keeps getting hired, now with Titans

"We will have our apparatus on display, we'll have games for the kids, we'll have Sparky the Fire Dog", he said. By the end of their program, even the youngest of students at Dragon's Wagon Preschool were dutifully replying "two" when asked how many exits they need in an escape plan. The 2014 code has identified that as a major issue and now requires all new residential dwellings to have a smoke alarm on every level and in every bedroom.

"They are affordable and can get you out of the home when your escape route is blocked", he said. Reliable, properly placed smoke detectors are vital to keeping your family safe. A representative from the Fire Marshal's Office will visit your home and review fire safety in your home.

Texas at Iowa State
Texas coach Tom Herman gave credit to Iowa State's defensive game plan and acknowledged his team's mistakes and shortcomings. The teams combined for 568 total yards and 37 first downs, which is about one team's total in a typical Big 12 game.
