Oct. 4-10 is National Fire Prevention Week. It’s a perfect opportunity to rally your lodge behind a fire safety program in your community. Consider one of the following ideas to recognize fire prevention in your lodge:
• Work with Masonic youth to assemble and distribute ICE (In Case of Emergency) kits. Materials are available through Grand Master Charvonia’sRepair Shop.
• Support the Grand Master’s Project, Firefighters in Safety Education.This important program brings active firefighters into California public schools to teach age-appropriate fire safety lessons, like “Stop Drop and Roll,” how to call 9-1-1, and how to escape from a fire in the home. Give today.
• Help ensure your brothers are ready when disaster strikes by reviewing the Red Cross’ Emergency Preparedness Checklist. Use the checklist to help senior members and sweethearts prepare a disaster supplies kit.
• Make sure that your lodge and home have working smoke alarms in each room.
And, get even more fire safety tips, from the National Fire Protection Association.
