President Calvin Coolidge dedicated one week out of October (always the Sunday to Saturday in which October 9th falls) to inform the public on the importance of fire prevention. This desire spurred from roughly 15,000 lives lost in 1924 due to fires.

Fire Protection Tips

The BTV fire protection system is a great tool to keep you safe. However, there are additional preventative measures to take to ensure safety, such as:

  • Report any electrical hazard. Faulty wiring is a main cause of fires.
  • Declutter your area. Clutter can add fuel to fires and block life-saving exits.
  • Smoke in designated areas and extinguish the cigarette properly.
  • Learn how to use a fire extinguisher properly and instruct others, as well.
  • Store chemicals safely. Many fires start because hazardous material is not in its correct location.
