Village Public Safety Officers Conducting Free Home Safety Inspections during October - Fire Prevention Month 

October is Fire Prevention Month, and KANA has again collaborated with the American Red Cross to boost home safety across the island.  KANA has certified several staff members through the American Red Cross Home Fire Preparedness Campaign to inspect residences for fire hazards and provide direction for evacuation planning in the event of a fire.  Village communities will be able to sign up for a free home safety inspection and planning session with families, including installation of free smoke detectors as needed during the month of October.

The most effective way to protect yourself and your home from fire is to identify and remove fire hazards. Smoke alarm installation is critical to reducing home fire deaths. By ensuring that households have working smoke alarms and by teaching people how to prepare for disasters, we can help our communities increase their chance of survival when disaster occurs. During a home fire, working smoke alarms and well-practiced fire escape plans can save lives. 

We are committed to work together with all our Kodiak communities in an effort to seek and provide the collective resources needed to ensure emergency preparedness. Contact your local VPSO to arrange a free home safety inspection today.
