Hillsdale, Mich. —
All across the state of Michigan fire services are being encouraged to show the importance of fire safety to citizens in their respective regions.
Oct. 4-10 has been declared Fire Prevention Week by Gov. Jennifer Granholm with this year's program focusing on burn awareness, prevention and promoting public understanding of the leading causes of home fires.
State Fire Marshal Ronald Farr had several tips to ensure preventable accidents do not occur in the home.
“Ideally a home should have one fire alarm per bedroom, and one outside the bedroom in each level of a given home,” he said.
