October 7-13, 2018 is Fire Prevention Week, a week designed to promote public awareness on how to stay safe in case of a fire. Each year, the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) chooses a theme for the week. This year’s theme is “Look, Listen, Learn,” three basic steps to reduce the likelihood of having a fire. Visit the NFPA website for helpful information on fire prevention.
In addition, the Authority has numerous resources for members on cjpia.org. Training offerings include fire extinguisher safety, fire prevention in the office, and emergency preparedness. In the resources and documents library, there are policy templates for emergency action and fire prevention plans, and a checklist for noting and correcting fire hazards.
For more information on how the Authority can assist with fire safety, members can contact their assigned Risk Manager.
