The Yaphank Fire Department will be holding open houses and events the week of October 23-29 in honor of National Fire Prevention Week, a time to recognize the dangers that can occur in the places we feel the safest. This year’s theme, “Every Second Counts – Plan 2 Ways Out!” refers to the strong recommendation that residents plan two escape routes from their homes in the event of a fire. Families are encouraged to attend the open houses to participate and learn the best ways to prevent fires and keep their homes safe. Coloring books and fire helmets will be handed out. Fire Safety Brochures printed in several languages will also be distributed.
