(10/10/18) The Monroe Fire Department put on their annual city wide fire drill Wednesday morning as one of their fire prevention week activities.
Department member Antonio Brown says the drill is used to encourage businesses, schools, families, and churches to have a fire escape plan in place before it’s too late.
“Fires can happen anywhere and at anytime and when it happens, that’s not the time to plan. You already need to have an escape route. Two ways in and two ways out,” says Antonio Smith with Monroe Fire Department.
The fire department says this week is fire prevention week and if you do not have a fire safety plan in place, this week is the perfect time to create and practice one.
