The theme of this year's Fire Prevention Week (October 7th to 13th) is "Have Two Ways Out". Peterborough Fire Services will be holding a number of events during Fire Prevention Week to raise public awareness about the importance of having two ways out.
Also, Peterborough Fire Chief Doug Tennant is urging families to practice their home fire escape plan as part of Fire Prevention Week. When the smoke alarms sounds, everyone must know where to go—it is important for everyone to have working smoke alarms and to develop and practice a home fire escape plan.
