FDNY holds special events for Fire Safety Week
New York?s Bravest held simulated incidents and workshops during Fire Safety Week to teach people how to be safe.
In addition to enacting a rescue operation using the ?Jaws of Life,? FDNY members also provided reading material on how to survive a house fire. They encouraged people to have at least two exits from every room and also reminded them never to go back inside of a house in the event of a fire.
Officials say that most fires, caused by candles, overloaded electrical outlets and smoking in bed, are preventable.
