Not Every Hero Wears a Cape. Plan and Practice Your Escape!

 The Silver City Fire Department is teaming up with the National Fire Protection Association® (NFPA®)—the official sponsor of Fire Prevention Week for more than 90 years—to promote this year’s Fire Prevention Week campaign, “Not Every Hero Wears a Cape. Plan and Practice Your Escape!” The campaign works to educate everyone about the small but important actions they can take to keep themselves and those around them safe.  

NFPA statistics show that in 2017 U.S. fire departments responded to 357,000 home structure fires. These fires caused 2,630 fire deaths and 10,600 fire injuries. On average, seven people died in a fire in a home per day during 2012 to 2016.

“These numbers show that home fires continue to pose a significant threat to safety,” said Lorraine Carli, NFPA’s vice president of Outreach and Advocacy. “In a typical home fire, you may have as little as one to two minutes to escape safely from the time the smoke alarm sounds. Escape planning and practice can help you make the most of the time you have, giving everyone enough time to get out.

While NFPA and the Silver City Fire Department are focusing on home fires, these messages apply to virtually any location.

“Situational awareness is a skill people need to use wherever they go,” said Deputy Chief Marshall. “No matter where you are, look for available exits. If the alarm system sounds, take it seriously and exit the building immediately.”

The Silver City Fire Department  is hosting an open house at both of their fire stations October -6-12, 8 am to 5 pm in support of Fire Prevention Week and this year’s campaign, we would like to invite the community to attend.  The event will include a short presentation as well as a tour of a fire station and fire trucks.  Sparky the fire dog will be there for the kids.  Each child will receive a bag with various fire prevention related activity items and refreshments. 

To find out more about Fire Prevention Week programs and activities in Silver City, please contact Deputy Chief Kylle Marshall at (575)-956-3513 or by email at deputychief@silvercitynm.gov.  For more general information about Fire Prevention Week and home escape planning, visit www.fpw.org.


“Look. Listen. Learn.”

Silver City Fire Department urges all Silver City and Grant County residents to “Look. Listen. Learn.”

This year’s campaign “Look. Listen. Learn.” Highlights three steps people can take to help quickly and safely escape a fire.

1. Look for places fire could start.
2. Listen for the sound of the smoke alarm.
3. Learn 2 ways out of every room.

The Silver City Fire Department is working in coordination with the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), the official sponsor of the Fire Prevention Week for more than 90 years, to reinforce those potentially life-saving messages. Fire Prevention Week is October 14-20, 2018.
