Take Five Steps to Fire Safety

"Take Five" Steps to Fire Safety

Sioux Falls Fire Rescue commemorated Fire Prevention Week, October 15, 2011. Annually, the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) sponsors this event with a theme. Last year’s theme was “Protect Your Family From Fire.” Sioux Falls Fire Rescue supplemented this theme with five key steps to fire safety in the home.


Fire Prevention held a news conference on Friday, October 7, at 8 a.m. to provide an overview and answer questions on fire safety. During the work week (October 10–14), Fire Prevention provided daily press releases with a different topic. Each day encouraging the community to “Take Five” with a new topic specific to area residents. The campaign continued through the holiday season.
