October 3–9 is a busy week! Not only is it National 4-H Week, but it’s also Fire Prevention Week!

Randolph County 4-H teamed up with City Of Asheboro Fire Department’s Captain Jason Joines to create fire prevention videos. The videos covered this year’s National Fire Prevention Association theme, “Learn The Sounds Of Fire Safety”. According to the latest NFPA “Smoke Alarms in the U.S.” report, working smoke alarms in the home reduce the risk of dying in a reported fire by more than half. However, almost three out of five home fire deaths occur in homes with no smoke alarms (41 percent) or smoke alarms that failed to operate (16 percent); missing or non-functional power sources, including missing or disconnected batteries, dead batteries, and disconnected hardwired alarms or other AC power issues, are the most common factors when smoke alarms fail to operate. Topics covered were Home Emergency Plans, alarm sounds, how to change the batteries, and what to do in case of a fire or an emergency.

Stay tuned to our Facebook pages (both Randolph County 4-H and Asheboro Fire Department) to see the Fire Prevention Video of the Day!
