Insurance and Safety Fire Commissioner Ralph Hudgens and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) remind Georgians that Fire Prevention Week is October 9-15.
The theme this year is,“Protect Your Family From Fire.”
This year, Hudgens and fire personnel around the state will be focusing on preventing the leading causes of home fires: cooking, heating and electrical equipment, as well as candles and smoking materials.
Commissioner Hudgens is asking all Georgia Schools, statewide, to conduct a fire drill between the dates of October 9th -15th at 10:00 am. The Atlanta Public Schools will conduct our system wide fire drill on October 12th at 10:00 am.
Please schedule your October drill accordingly and do not forget to post your drill on-line. If you have any questions, or require additional information, please contact Ms. Fitzgerald in the Department of Safety & Security at 404- 802- 2023.
