Fire Prevention Tips

“Not every hero wears a cape. PLAN and PRACTICE your ESCAPE!”

  1. Draw a map of all the rooms in your home.
  2. Mark two exits from each room (usually a door and a window). Mark a path from each exit to the outside.
  3. Include the location of all smoke alarms in your home.
  4. Choose an outside meeting place in front of your home where everyone will meet upon exiting.
  5. Add "911" or the local emergency number to your plan.
  6. Plan to call that number from a neighbor's phone or a cell phone once you're outside.
Practice your escape plan TWICE a year!!!
 
 

The National Fire Prevention Association wants you to pay attention to your surroundings, look for available exits, and take the smoke alarm seriously if it sounds. This can make the difference between life and death in a fire or emergency.

TEACH CHILDREN ALL EXITS OUT OF THE HOME,

HOW TO RESPOND SHOULD THE SMOKE ALARMS ACTIVATE, AND

CREATE A SAFE FAMILY MEETING PLACE OUTSIDE THE HOUSE.
 

 

 

PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT

DIAL 911

Dial 9-1-1 for ALL requests for fire department assistance or ambulance

even if you don't think it's a technically an "emergency."

Each and every FIRE and EMS request must be properly documented and dispatched by our 911 operators - who are ALWAYS there to answer your call. The Winchendon Fire Department is a very busy fire department. There will be times when no one can answer the business lines because we are out on calls. Our non-emergency numbers are for regular station business only, not dispatching.

It is the goal of the Winchendon fire department to provide each and every Winchendon resident the quickest and most efficient response possible. Thank you for your cooperation.
