NATIONAL FIRE PREVENTION WEEK
OCT. 7TH - 13TH
October 7th marks the start of National Fire Prevention Week throughout the U.S. This year’s theme focuses on “Practice Your Escape Plan!”
According to an NFPA poll (PDF, 759 KB), the majority of Americans have a fire escape plan, but most haven’t practiced it. From October 7-13, fire safety advocates will be spreading the word that when it comes to escape plans, practice is key. Let’s get started!
Sound the alarm During Fire Prevention Week, NFPA is asking kids and families all across North America to practice their home fire escape plans. With your help, we hope to have the world’s biggest fire drill. Let’s get started!
After you’ve practiced your drill, make sure to visit Sparky.org to make your drill count.

FROM THE DESK OF
SECRETARY JOHN COELHO
To all County Chiefs, Training Officers and House Captain, If there are any changes or information about your department that needs sharing, please let me know ASAP, so that I can include it in the next print of the Hoseline. If there has been a Line of Duty Death, a department member has answered his or her last alarm. Please let me know as soon as possible so that I can make sure that their name is added to the list and not forgotten at the Annual Hartford County Memorial Service which is held during National Fire Prevention week. Also if someone is sick or in
the hospital forward me their names so it can be read off at the board meetings and plan meetings. You can e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
or mail the information to me at PO Box 447, Plainville, CT.06062.
