Think Fire Safety!


The West Mayfield Volunteer Fire Department and West Mayfield Borough will be promoting National Fire Prevention Week (October 6-12, 2013) by offering a daily online series of fire prevention topics.

This five-part series from the National Fire Protection Association will cover a variety of important safety topics.

A handy downloadable fact sheet will be available on the website, and we encourage all residents to share this information with your family, friends, and neighbors.

 Monday:  Cooking

Cooking fires are the #1 cause of home fires and home fire injuries.

Tuesday: Microwave Oven Safety

By following a few simple safety tips, you can prevent painful burns and possible fires.

Wednesday: Scald Prevention

A scald injury can happen at any age. Hot liquids from bath water, hot coffee and even microwaved soup can cause devastating injuries.

Thursday: Escape Planning

Fire can spread rapidly through your home, leaving you as little as two minutes to escape safely once the alarm sounds.

Friday: Smoke Alarms

Smoke alarms that are properly installed and maintained play a vital role in reducing fire deaths and injuries.
