     Why should I have a working smoke alarm?

        A properly installed and maintained smoke alarm is the only thing in your home that can alert you and your family to a fire 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Whether youre awake or asleep, a working smoke alarm is constantly on alert, scanning the air for fire and smoke.

      According to the National Fire Protection Association, almost two-thirds of home fire deaths resulted from fires in properties without working smoke alarms. A working smoke alarm significantly increases your chances of surviving a deadly home fire.  

       If you are a homeowner and live within the city limits, the Shawnee Fire Department will install a new smoke alarm at no charge?
Call 273-4282 to schedule an appointment.
      If you rent, your landlord is responsible to provide a working smoke alarm on every floor. If you need a 9 volt battery replaced in an existing smoke alarm, this service is provided free of charge to home owners by calling 273-4282.

    Kicking off the “Season” - Are YOU Ready?
    Everyone ready for the “Season”? No? Well we, being the City and the Emergency Management group, aren’t enthused about it but we ARE ready for it. Of course we are talking about “Tornado Season”, that wonder time… err, TIMES of the year when Oklahoma weather can be a little over bearing. With some bad weather possible soon you should review your “Oklahoma Weather Kit” and get ready for the Spring time.
    So first up let’s talk about that kit, your “Family Disaster Supply Kit” is the official name.

    After a disaster, local officials and relief workers will be on the scene, but they cannot reach everyone immediately. You could get help in hours or it may take days. Your family will cope best by preparing for disaster before it happens. One thing to do in preparedness is assemble a 72-hour disaster supplies kit. Once disaster hits, you won’t have time to shop or search for supplies. But if you’ve gathered supplies in advance, your family can endure an evacuation or home confinement.

    There are six basics you should stock in your home: water (one gallon per person per day) , food, first aid supplies, clothing and bedding, tools and emergency supplies, and special items.
    Keep the items that you would most likely need during an evacuation in an easy to carry container such as a large covered trash container, a camping backpack, or a duffle bag.
    Store your kit in a convenient place known to all family members. Keep a smaller version of the disaster supplies kit in your car.

    Changed your stored water supply every six months so it stays fresh.

    Rotate your stored food every six months.

    Re-think your kit and family needs at least once a year. Replace batteries, update your clothes, etc.
    Ask your physician or pharmacist about storing prescription medicines.

    Next time we’ll talk about taking shelter, but until then, be safe and be aware!
