Deep Gap Fire promotes “Close before you doze” campaign!
October is Fire Prevention Month! Every Deep Gap Firefighter promotes the “Close before you doze” campaign. Closing the doors in your house can help save your life. Closing doors can compartmentalize the fire and drastically improve conditions in other portions of your home during a fire.
Deep Gap Fire Department saw this first hand at one of our structure fires earlier this year. Fire heavily damaged the house and made the atmosphere impossible to survive in…except for the one room that had a closed door! That room suffered very minimal damage and even had a Bunny inside that survived.
