FIRE MARSHALL URGES RESIDENTS TO ‘STAY FIRE SMART”
October 05, 2009



(OLYMPIA,WA) -- Once a child touches a hot stove, as the cliché goes—he learns his lesson, stay away from a hot stove. This cliché does not take into account the pain and suffering from burns -- burns should not be part of the learning process.

That’s why State Fire Marshal Mike Matlick is teaming up with the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) for Fire Prevention Week 2009 – October 4-10 – to urge Washington residents to “Stay Fire Smart! Don’t Get Burned.”

This year’s campaign focuses on ways to keep homes fire safe and prevent painful burns. Additionally, fire safety educators will be teaching local residents how to plan and practice escape from a home in case a fire occurs.

The statistics are sobering: based on a five-year average, approximately 5 people die in fires each month in Washington State.

“The most common types of burn injuries result from fire or flame burns, scalds and contact burns,” said State Fire Marshal Mike Matlick.

“Burns are painful and can result in serious scarring and even death. When we take extra caution in our homes to ensure that the curling iron is out of children’s reach or pot handles are turned away from the edge of the stove, such injuries are entirely preventable. Keeping our homes safe from fire and preventing devastating burn injuries is a healthy change we can make happen” Matlick added.

By following simple safety rules, you can “Stay Fire Smart! Don’t Get Burned.”

·      Keep hot foods and liquids away from tables and counter edges so they cannot be pulled or knocked over.

·      Have a 3-foot “kid-free” zone around the stove.

·      Never hold a child in your arms while preparing hot food or drinking a hot beverage.

·      Be careful when using things that get hot such as curling irons, oven, irons, lamps, heaters.

·      Install tamper-resistant receptacles to prevent a child from sticking an object in the outlet.

·      Never leave a child alone in a room with a lit candle, portable heater, lit fireplace or stove, or where a hot appliance might be in use.

·      Wear short or close-fitting sleeves when cooking.

·      Set your hot water temperature no higher than 120 degrees.

·      Install anti-scald valves on shower heads and faucets.

Fire Prevention Week is actively supported by fire departments across the country. For 85 years, fire departments have observed Fire Prevention Week, making it the longest running public health and safety observance on record.

The Office of the State Fire Marshal is a Bureau of the Washington State Patrol, providing fire and life safety services to the citizens of Washington State including inspections of state licensed facilities, plan review of school construction projects, licensing of fire sprinkler contractors and pyrotechnic operators, training Washington State’s firefighters, and collecting emergency response data.
