This year’s Fire Prevention Week theme is “Fire won’t wait. Plan your escape.”

Click here to see a new Fire Prevention Week video featuring Skokie Fire Captain Christopher Vrshek

Quickly report any fire by calling 9-1-1. Be sure to practice escape drills at home, know two ways out of your home, close doors behind you and have a designated meeting place. Once you’re out, stay out! It’s important to have a working fire extinguisher and to test smoke and carbon monoxide detectors at least twice a year. Be sure to "close before you doze" by closing the bedroom door to give more time to escape a fire and to "hear the beep where you sleep" by making sure smoke and carbon monoxide detectors are installed close to sleeping rooms.

Fire Prevention week was started in 1925 in remembrance of the Great Chicago Fire of 1871. Watch for more information soon as well as a Fire Prevention Week video!
