When Fire Comes Knocking

Post Date:10/02/2017 12:00 PM

When fire comes knocking, will your family know what to do? Join us for a city-wide fire drill in October during Fire Prevention Month!

Did you know?

Just 1 in 5 parents practice a home fire drill regularly and only half of parents say their children know what to do in the event of a home fire.

In 2015, 3,280 civilians died in house fires in the U.S.

Cooking accidents are the leading cause of home structure fires.

In October, plan and practice a fire drill in your home so everyone will be prepared in case of a fire.

Practice and get a prize* from the Fire Department! It’s easy!

1. Take a picture of your family during your home fire drill (planning, at your meeting spot, etc)

2. Post your picture to Facebook or Instagram with #SandyFireDrill and tag Sandy City (so we can see your picture!)

3. Visit to submit your name and photo to claim your prize*!

*while supplies last, only open to Sandy residents

Need a smoke alarm?

Sandy City Fire Department partnered with the American Red Cross this year to install 1,000 smoke alarms free to Sandy residents.  

If you or anyone you know may be in need of installed smoke alarms, please contact (801) 568-2930.
