Fire Prevention Week

Fire Prevention Week October 6-12, 2019

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 is hosted its annual Fire Prevention Week Poster Contest highlighting this year's theme "Not Every Hero Wears a Cape. Plan and Practice Your Escape!" 

Students in participating elementary schools through out the City of Pembroke Pines had a chance to participate in this years competition. Three winners in each grade, were recognized and awarded and their posters were displayed from October 7-16 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.

Not Every Hero Wears a Cape. Plan and Practice Your Escape!

This year’s campaign, “Not Every Hero Wears a Cape. Plan and Practice Your Escape!” works to educate everyone about the small but important actions they can take to keep themselves and those around them safe.

In a typical home fire, you may have as little as one to two minutes to escape safely from the time the smoke alarm sounds. Escape planning and practice can help you make the most of the time you have, giving everyone enough time to get out.
