FIRE PREVENTION TIP: Take Fire Safety Back to College
Many students are preparing to leave for college. A good “house warming gift” may include a smoke or carbon monoxide detector or even a fire extinguisher. Parents, please check your student’s living situation to see if any of these items are needed….It could save a life.
September in Minnesota has been proclaimed by Governor Mark Dayton to be Campus Fire Safety Month. Let's kick off another school year with a firm commitment to keep our kids fire safe.
