Mayor Teri Johnston and the Key West City Commission proclaimed this week as Fire Prevention Week, and the Key West Fire Department calls all of October Fire Prevention Month.

Each year, the National Fire Protection Association focuses on a theme.  For 2022 it's "Fire Won't Wait, Plan Your Escape."

"This year's theme effectively reminds all of us of the importance of developing a fire escape plan for all members of your household and practicing your plan regularly," said Captain Jason Barroso, the Division Chief of Fire Prevention and the Fire Marshal for the City. 

He noted that firefighters would visit schools and community gatherings to share this safety message.

“I would also like to remind the citizens of Key West that we receive a yearly donation of smoke/CO2 combination detectors, which allows us to provide free smoke/co2 detectors for community members in need."

The detectors are available at Central Fire Station #1 at 1600 North Roosevelt Blvd.

"We want to thank Mrs. Diane Schmidt and D.J. McCarthy of Opal Key Resort, as well as Andy Strunk of Strunk Ace Hardware, for generously donating the detectors."
