fpw16bannerMayor Mark S. Nexsen proclaims the week of October 9 through October 15, 2016 as Fire Prevention Week. The 2016 Fire Prevention Week theme, “Don’t Wait – Check the Date! Replace Smoke Alarms Every 10 Years” effectively serves to educate the public about the vital importance of replacing the smoke alarms in their homes at least every ten years, and to determine the age of their smoke alarms by checking the date of the manufacture on the back of the alarms.
