Branson Fire Rescue will focus on the sounds of fire safety during this year’s Fire Prevention Week, October 3-9, to educate the Branson community on simple but important actions that will keep themselves and those around them safe.
Starting Sunday, October 3, 2021, and throughout Fire Prevention Week, Branson Fire Rescue will post important safety tips and educational resources to its Facebook page (Branson MO Fire-Rescue) on this year’s Fire Prevention Week campaign, titled, “Learn the Sounds of Fire Safety.” The Department will also host a series of events in support of this year’s campaign, including providing fire safety education programs at area schools and pre-schools.
This year’s theme focuses on learning the different sounds of smoke and carbon monoxide alarms and making sure everyone in the home understands what the sounds mean and how to respond to them.
“This theme may sound simple, but it’s not something people often think about,” said Branson Fire Chief, Ted Martin. “It’s vital people take the time to go over the different sounds of their particular alarms. Knowing the difference between a single chirp and a continuous set of three loud beeps can save lives,” said Chief Martin.
