Fire Prevention Week begins today and is the perfect time to teach your children how to safely exit the home if a fire occurs. Make sure your children know:
• Two ways out of the home
• How to “Stay Low and Go”
• How to check a door before opening
• How and when to call 911
In addition, each year the Middleburg Heights Fire Department, in conjunction with the State Fire Marshal’s Office, sponsors a coloring contest. This year’s contest runs until October 10. Gianna Mascardine, then a 6th grader at Saint Bartholomew, was a state-wide winner in 2013.
