Mayor Sipma proclaims Oct. 7-13 as Fire Prevention Week

City of Minot Fire Inspector Dean Lenertz said Oct. 8 that Fire Prevention Week is an important opportunity to remind residents that replacing batteries in smoke detectors and practicing a home fire escape plan can save lives in the event of a fire.

The theme for the 2018 Fire Prevention Week, scheduled for Oct. 7-13, is “Look. Listen. Learn. Be aware – fire can happen anywhere.” Lenertz reinforced those ideas after an event Monday at Minot’s Fire Station 1.

“Studies have shown that four out of five fire deaths in the United States happen at home,” Lenertz said. “Fire Prevention Week is designed to create awareness about home fire safety and to remind residents that seemingly little things like making sure smoke alarms and fire extinguishers are in good working order can save your life.”

Minot City Council member Lisa Olson helped kick off Fire Prevention Week.

“The City of Minot is committed to ensuring the safety and security of all those living in and visiting Minot,” Olson said Monday, quoting Mayor Shaun Sipma’s official proclamation to mark the beginning of Fire Prevention Week.
