Friday, 01 March 2013 00:00The Massapequa Fire Department often reminds residents of the dangers of house fires. Last week, we saw that awful realty when a Massapequa Park man was killed in a fire. In our hectic lives, tasks such as developing a fire escape plan can often be put off until a more convenient time arrives. Unfortunately, fires do not work on our schedules. They can occur at any time. If you and your family do not have a fire escape plan, be sure to develop one immediately and hold a drill as soon as possible. In addition, be sure that your home has eliminated any fire hazards, and that every level of your home has a smoke alarm with fresh batteries.
Fire safety is something we can all be lax about. Last week, tragically, we saw why it is so important.
