Fire District 7 Annual Open House

Clearview, Wash. – Snohomish County Fire District 7 invites residents to kick-off Fire Prevention Week at its Annual Open House. The 29th Annual Open House will take place from noon to 4 p.m. on Sunday, October 5 at Fire District 7 Headquarters (8010 180th St. SE, Snohomish). This free event will include auto extrication demonstrations, tours of the fire safety trailer, fire engine tours and much more!

Fire District 7 is joining forces with the nonprofit National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) during Fire Prevention Week, October 5-11, to remind residents that working smoke alarms can make a life-saving difference in a fire. That’s the message behind this year’s Fire Prevention Week campaign, "Working Smoke Alarms Save Lives: Test Yours Every Month!"

According to the latest NFPA research, working smoke alarms cut the chance of dying in a fire in half. Meanwhile, almost two-thirds of home fire deaths resulted from fires in homes with no smoke alarms or no working smoke alarms.

"In a fire, seconds count," explained Public Educator Autumn Waite. "Roughly half of home fire deaths result from fires reported at night between 11 p.m. and 7 a.m. when most people are asleep. Home smoke alarms can alert people to a fire before it spreads, giving everyone enough time to get out."

This year’s Fire Prevention Week campaign includes the following smoke alarm messages:
• Install smoke alarms in every bedroom, outside each separate sleeping area and on every level of the home, including the basement.
• Interconnect all smoke alarms throughout the home. This way, when one sounds, they all do.
• Test alarms at least monthly by pushing the test button.
• Replace all smoke alarms when they are 10 years old or sooner if they don’t respond properly.
• Make sure everyone in the home knows the sound of the smoke alarm and understands what to do when they hear it.
