Mayor Urges Fire Safety in wake of Bronx Tragedy

Tuesday

From NY1.com: "Mayor Michael Bloomberg is once again urging New Yorkers to keep fire safety in mind, in the wake of this week's tragic fire in the Bronx.

In his weekly radio address on 1010 WINS, the mayor stressed the importance of preparing for an emergency.

'If a fire does occur, get out of the house as quickly as possible, and you can help contain it and possibly save lives by closing the doors behind you. Then, use the nearest phone to call 911,' he said. 'Every family should develop and discuss a fire escape plan and practice it. That's especially important if you have children. It only takes a few minutes, but it could save lives.'

Investigators say the Highbridge fire started with an overloaded electrical cord leading to a space heater. The building had smoke detectors, but there were no batteries in them.

Investigators also say residents did not call 911 immediately, delaying the response. "

This should be a lesson to us all. Check your batteries, replace your batteries or add more smoke detectors if you only have one or two. If sprinklers are out of the question in your project, detectors and fire extinguishers could save your life and lives of your family.
