Fire is everyone's fight, and that's why the St. Marys Fire Department, in conjunction with the State Fire Marshal's office, is asking Ohioans to think of one thing they can do to prevent or prepare for a fire.
Fire officials throughout the State are encouraging Ohians to take the pledge and post a photo on their social media accounts and use #WhatCanYouDo or send it to your local fire department.
This campaign will kick off during Fire Prevention Week, October 9-15, 2016. The National theme is "Don't Wait - Check the Date!" which encourages everyone to check the manufacture date on their smoke alarms. If the date on your alarm is more than ten years ago, the entire unit needs replaced. Smoke alarms are less effective after ten years.
