Greetings Friends and Neighbors,
A reminder to young parents and to all those who care about our most precious resource, our children. Please discuss these fire safety tips with your children:
- Instruct your children how to report a fire or medical emergency by dialing 911
- Make sure
your babysitter knows to call 911 in event of a fire or medical emergency
- Develop a fire emergency escape plan with your entire family
- Instruct your children to get low and get out
- Explain "stop, drop and roll" in the event their clothing catches fire
- Do not hide under the bed or in a closet
- Do not return to the fire scene until told it is safe to return by fire personnel
Our numbers are small but our dedication to our community is larger than life itself. We are all volunteers. We are continuously training to maintain the level of professionalism that Orient deserves. Helped by your generous gifts, we will continue to respond to fire / medical emergencies and continue to offer both fire safety and CPR courses to the entire community. Let's all continue to protect all our children.
