Sound the Alarm, Save a Life - September 23rd to October 15th

Fire - 8/14/2017 4:27:36 PM

Mayor Derek Armstead and the Linden Fire Department are always concerned about the well-being of our residents, and have joined the American Red Cross' "Sound the Alarm" Campaign, which runs from September 23 to October 15, 2017, to share vital information about home fire safety. Please read the following recommend tips and information to better prepare in the event of a home fire:

Nobody ever thinks it will happen to them, but a deadly fire can strike anytime, anywhere.

Do you know what to do when the alarm sounds in your home?

According to a Red Cross survey, most Americans think they have at least five minutes to escape a fire – but fire-safety experts say you have just two minutes, and maybe even less.

And though most parents believe their children would know what to do in a fire, less than half have already talked to their families about fire safety.

Make sure you know the facts, and that your household is properly prepared for when disaster strikes:
