West Hartford Assistant Fire Chief Mike Sinsigalli said Friday that plans for National Fire Prevention Week - which runs from Sunday to October 14- that typically includes open houses at all five fire stations, visits to schools and distributing red plastic helmets, have been scaled back due to budget concerns.

That's why this year's Fire Prevention Week theme: "Every Second Counts: Plan 2 Ways Out!" is so important.

"We're really pushing 'close before you doze.' Fire is a serious concern in our community", firefighter Jerry Smith explained.

The Ashtabula Fire Department and NFPA strongly encourage residents to develop a home fire escape plan with all household members.

-Once you get outside, stay outside.

The public is invited to celebrate this month the official opening of the city's fourth fire station as well as a new home for the Enterprise Fire Department's Central Headquarters. Call the fire department from outside the home - from a neighbour's home or a cell phone. Under no circumstances should you ever go back into a burning building.

Sills said any parents that want help with teaching their children about fire safety can contact the fire department for information.
