Fire Prevention Week


Fire Prevention Week October 7-13, 2018

The Pembroke Pines Fire Rescue Department continues to work in coordination with the National Fire Protection Association, the official sponsor of the Fire Prevention Week for more than 90 years.

To support Fire Prevention Week and reinforce those potentially life-saving messages, Pembroke Pines Fire Rescue will host its annual Fire Prevention Week Poster Contest highlighting this year's theme "Look. Listen. Learn: Be aware. Fire can happen anywhere."

Students in participating elementary schools throughout the City of Pembroke Pines will have a chance to compete. Winners of the contest will be awarded and their posters will be displayed at City Hall during Fire Prevention Week. This is a great opportunity for children to show case their creative talents and get them thinking about fire safety at the same time. 

This year's campaign "Look. Listen. Learn." highlights three steps you and your family can take to help quickly and safely escape a fire.

  • Look for places fire could start.
  • Listen for the sound of the smoke alarm.
  • Learn 2 ways out of every room.
