Beacon Hose to Participate in Operation EDITH on Oct. 8

Beacon Hose wants to remind all of our residents that Fire Prevention Week is this Oct. 3-9! This year’s theme is “Learn the Sounds of Fire Safety” — we recommend looking at this great tip sheet about what the sounds coming from your smoke alarm or carbon monoxide detector mean!

Unfortunately, COVID-19 is still in the way of our usual Fire Prevention Week activities, but the fire department is inviting everyone to join Operation EDITH on Friday, Oct. 8!

Operation EDITH stands for “Exit Drills in the Home” and is intended to help families practice their home fire escape plans. All you need to do to participate is wait until Beacon Hose’s fire whistle sounds at 6 p.m., practice your home fire escape plan as a family, and wait outside at your meeting place. Beacon Hose’s firetrucks will be driving through many neighborhoods to see how many families have a secure plan and practiced it with us.
