Fire Safety and Prevention

Keep your family safe with a working smoke alarm in every bedroom.

Did you know that roughly half of home fire deaths result from fires reported between 11 p.m. and 7 a.m., when most people are asleep?

Smoke alarms save lives. If there is a fire in your home, smoke spreads fast and you need smoke alarms to give you time to get out. In fact, having a working smoke alarm cuts the chances of dying in a reported fire in half!

Fire Prevention Safety Tips

Each year, the members of the Clawson Fire Department take vacation time from their full-time jobs to conduct fire prevention assemblies with the pre-school and elementary school children. The kids are taught what to do in an emergency, and also get to practice skills in a mock bedroom scenario. At the end of the week, the department holds an open house, provides live demonstrations and invites the public into the station to see the inner workings of the department.
