Community Update

by Paul S. Wilson, Fire Chief

The Cathedral City Fire Department will celebrate National Fire Prevention Week on Saturday Oct. 13, 2018 from 8:00 – 10:30 a.m. with a “Free” Pancake Breakfast and Open House at the Fire Station located at 32100 Desert Vista Rd. (South of Ramon Rd. & West of Date Palm Dr.)

National Fire Prevention Week is held annually during October to commemorate the Great Chicago Fire, a tragic 1871 conflagration that killed more than 250 people, left 100,000 homeless, destroyed more than 17,400 structures and burned more than 2,000 acres.

The 2018 Fire Prevention theme is:

 

Keep your family safe with a working smoke alarm in every bedroom.

Did you know that roughly half of all home fire deaths result from fires reported between 11 p.m. and 7 a.m., when most people are asleep?

Smoke alarms save lives. If there is a fire in your home, smoke spreads fast and you need smoke alarms to give you time to get out. Having a working smoke alarm cuts the chances of dying in a reported fire in half!

A ten-year sealed battery smoke alarm is recommended for every bedroom and the adjacent hallway(s) outside of the bedrooms. If your existing home smoke alarm is more than ten years old, it’s time to replace it.

Visit the Cathedral City Fire Department website at www.cathedralcityfire.org or contact us at (760) 770-8200 for additional life safety and fire prevention information.
