Life Safety Park Says Change Your Clock, Change Your Battery®

Remember to set your clocks back one hour on Sunday as Daylight Savings Time ends! It's also a great time to do some smoke alarm maintenance as well:
“Fresh batteries in smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors can help provide the extra seconds needed to save a life,” Coppell Fire Chief Kevin Richardson states.

🎃 Halloween Fire Facts:

👻 From 2014-2018, an average of 770 home structure fires began with decorations per year.
👻 More than two of every five of these fires occurred because the decorations were too close to a heat source, such as a candle or hot equipment.
👻 More than one-third of these fires were started by candles.
👻 More than one-fifth (22%) of the decoration fires started in the kitchen; 16% began in the living room.

Dan Doofus: An Alarming Trend

Dan Doofus, at it again! Watch him learn about how to properly install and maintain working smoke alarms in his home.

Did you know:
- Almost three of every five home fire deaths resulted from fires in homes with no smoke alarms or no working smoke alarms.
- In fires in which the smoke alarms were present but did not operate, more than two of every five of the smoke alarms had missing or disconnected batteries.

✅ Test smoke alarms monthly
✅ Change batteries at least once a year

#FPW Week #1 Continues:

Cooking is often relaxing and fun and the kitchen a wonderful place for families and friends to gather. But as you now know (thanks to Moe), cooking is also the leading cause of home fires and home fire injuries.

- Keep your cooking area clean and clutter free. Move dishtowels, bags, boxes, and anything that can burn at least three feet away from the stove.
- Stay in the kitchen when you are cooking at high temperatures, like when boiling, grilling, or frying food. If you must leave, turn off the burner(s).
- Keep a lid or cookie sheet nearby when cooking: if the pot starts to flame, put the lid or cookie sheet over the pot, turn off the heat, and let it cool.

#FridayFun: We "Zoomed" with Pinkerton Elementary School 3rd graders this morning for a virtual field trip! We were their first stop of many great locations around Old Town. During the Zoom, we discussed this year's National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) Fire Prevention Week theme, "Serving Up Fire Safety In the Kitchen."

Since Mr. Upchurch rode his bike during their virtual field trip, we also took a little bit of time to talk about bicycle safety and proper helmet wear. #SafetyFirst!

What a fun start to the weekend! Thanks, Cowpokes!

A few safety tips if you're staying home this year:
✅ Keep those grills away from your home structure and any overhanging porches or trees.
✅ Check your gas grill for leaks, frayed cords, or other damages.
✅ A clean grill is a safe grill! Avoid the char buildup on your grill surface.

If you're planning to hit the road this year:
✅ Check your vehicle to make sure it is properly maintained and always ensure your cargo is secure.
✅ Buckle up everyone in the vehicle — it’s the law.
✅ Put the phones down! Drive distraction free.
✅ Make alternate transportation plans if you are consuming alcohol.
✅Move Over or Slow Down for police, fire, EMS, TxDOT vehicles and tow trucks.

🚴🧠 Helmets save noggins!

One of our Fire Families learned this over the weekend during a bike ride when their kiddo ironically crashed into a fire hydrant. Because she was wearing a helmet that was fitted properly, thankfully she was able to walk away with no injury...can't say the same for the hydrant! (kidding, it was fine)

A reminder that in Coppell, City Ordinance requires that all bike riders and bike passengers aged 14 and under must wear a helmet. So protect those young noggins, Coppell! Safe riding!
