Fire Prevention Week

During National Fire Prevention Week, October 7 – 13, 2012 the Union Grove – Yorkville Fire Department will be inviting the Union Grove and Yorkville Elementary schools, kindergarten through fourth grade, and daycare children to visit the Department, to learn and remind the children to ‘practice’ fire safety. It is not enough to have a home fire escape plan but, to escape safely; the plan should be practiced by all family members. The Department also stresses having two ways out of the home, working smoke detectors on every level of the home and the family meeting place once out of the home.
