Fire Prevention Week: Show Us You're #FireSafe!

Across North Texas, the American Red Cross helps an average of five families every day after home fires. Unlike many disasters, most home fires can be prevented. In honor of Fire Prevention Week, we want to see your steps to prevent a home fire in action. Snap, caption and post your fire prevention plan for your household!

Show off your smoke detectors, fire extinguishers or other fire safety equipment and post a picture to your favorite social network (Facebook, Twitter or Instagram) with the hashtag #ImFireSafe. The photo depicting the best fire prevention and preparedness will win a 3-day adult emergency kit, like this one:
*This contest will run from October 9, 2014 through October 12, 2014. Winner will be selected and announced on October 13, 2014.*

Don't forget to review home fire safety tips this week to reduce your risk!
The winning photo will win a 3-Day Adult Emergency Kit, which includes: 2,400 calorie food bars x6, 4.2 oz. water pouches x24, 12 hour light sticks x4, ponches x4, LED flashlight w/batteries x2, AM/FM radio w/speaker, headphones & batteries, 8 ounce hand sanitizer, hygiene comfort kit x4, leather palm work gloves, wrapped respirator masks x4, 2.5 gallon water storage bag, first aid kit, emergency blanket x4, whistle x4, 9'x12' plastic sheeting, duct tape, 2 rolls of toilet paper and sanitary napkins x6.
