CARRBORO, N.C. -- The National Fire Prevention Association has designated Oct. 8-14 as Fire Prevention Week and Mayor Damon Seils has proclaimed the observance locally.
Carrboro Fire-Rescue Department’s core mission includes protecting lives, property and the community from the destructive effects of all hazards. The department uses a multifaceted community risk reduction model to achieve this mission, which includes education, engineering, fire code enforcement, economic incentives and emergency response.
“I encourage all residents to ensure everyone in their home understands the sounds of the smoke alarms and knows how to respond, to make a home fire escape plan, and to ensure their smoke alarms are working and meet the needs of all family members, including those with sensory or physical disabilities,” says Mayor Seils. “I also encourage residents to share their appreciation for Carrboro Fire-Rescue’s dedicated first responders and to learn more about the community risk reduction services the department provides.”
