Focus on Fire Safety
- Arson Awareness
- Arson Watch Program: Communities can develop a Watch Program, partnering with their local fire department, law enforcement, insurance providers, business leaders, churches, and local community groups. Neighborhoods can reduce the likelihood of arson occurring by promoting neighborhood watches, educating people about recognizing and reporting unusual activities, and implementing improved internal and external security for homes and businesses. A community Arson Watch Program can put the neighbor back into neighborhood by creating a sense of cooperation. It brings the fire service, law enforcement, and citizens together to reduce the crime of arson.

Keeping Your Community Safe and Sound
Smoke alarms can mean the difference between life and death in a fire. Working smoke alarms cut the chance of dying in a fire in half. Smoke alarms detect and alert people to fire in its early stages, giving them the time needed to escape safety.
Keeping Your Community Safe with Carbon Monoxide Alarms
Carbon monoxide (CO) is called the invisible killer because you cannot see it or smell it. This poisonous gas is created when fossil fuels, such as kerosene, gasoline, coal, natural gas, propane, methane or wood, do not burn completely. The only way to detect CO is with a working CO alarm. Use the following resources from NFPA and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission to conduct a CO alarm awareness campaign in your community.
