October is Fire Prevention Month!

MERIDIAN TOWNSHIP - This October keep in mind that it's Fire Prevention Month.

October 6th-12th is Fire Awareness Week. A majority of fires are in the home, and most home fires occur in the kitchen.

More fires also occur during the holidays. It's important to be careful with extra holiday lighting in your home.

Some other ways to be cautious include changing your lint trap in your dryer, being careful with candles and never leaving them lit over night, checking smoke detectors monthly, and always have an escape route mapped out in case of emergency.
