After the fire block tour in Norwood.

Crews going door to door on the block of the working fire from last week. Ensuring each home has working smoke alarms, installing same if not and battery check and give away. Hand outs and fire safety tips. A good time had by all and time well spent.

Norwood fire company and Ridley Park fire company are partners in this block tour program~! Teamwork and community involvement at its finest level~!

15 years ago the Prospect Park Fire Co. started a program that after each working building fire in our town, we will visit the entire block and go door to door to make sure that all the residents have working smoke detectors and fresh batteries. If they do not, we will provide a free smoke detector and install it free of charge. By installing the smoke detector we ensure that it is installed properly and in the optimum location. Then we train the resident how to test the unit and change the battery. We remind our neighbors to test the detector monthly and change the batteries when you change the clocks for day light savings time. The crews will also hand out Fire Prevention Literature to help ensure our residents are prepared en-case an emergency should happen to them. We also encourage them to attend our annual Fire Prevention Open House in October during Fire Prevention Week. If you or anybody you know that lives in Prospect Park needs a smoke detector please call us at (610)-522-1830
