BRANSON, Mo – Branson Fire Rescue will focus on helping residents create a good home fire escape plan during this year’s Fire Prevention Week, October 9 to 15 to educate the Branson community on simple but important actions that will keep themselves and those around them safe.
The Department will host a series of events in support of this year’s campaign – Fire won’t wait. Plan your escape -- including providing fire safety education programs at area schools and pre-schools. It also helped residents create fire escape plans during the Branson Police Department’s community-wide, National Night Out on October 4 and will do the same at the Branson Parks & Recreation’s Boonanza on October 28. Branson Mayor, Larry Milton, will also present an official proclamation declaring October 9 through the 15 as National Fire Prevention Week in Branson at the October 11 Board of Aldermen meeting.
During these educational opportunities, Branson Fire Rescue will reiterate these vital reminders:
- Make sure your plan meets the needs of all family members, including those with sensory or physical disabilities
- Know at least two ways out of every room if possible. Make sure all doors and windows open easily.
- Have an outside meeting place a safe distance away from your home where everyone should meet.
- Practice your home fire drill at least twice a year with everyone in the household.
