Fire Prevention Week, October 7-13, 2012: 
Fire Department Urges Residents to 
"Have Two Ways Out" 

    

That's why the Moreno Valley Fire Department is teaming up with NFPA during Fire Prevention Week, October 7-13, 2012, to urge residents to "Have Two Ways Out!" This year's theme focuses on the importance of fire escape planning and practice. The Moreno Valley Fire Department recommends the following tips for planning your family's escape:

  • Make a map of your home. Mark a door and a window that can be used to get out of every room.
  • Choose a meeting place outside in front of your home. This is where everyone can meet once they've escaped. Draw a picture of your outside meeting place on your escape plan.
  • Write the emergency telephone number for the fire department (9-1-1) on your escape plan.
  • Have a grown-up sound the smoke alarm and practice your escape plan with everyone living in your home.
  • Keep your escape plan on the refrigerator and remind grown-ups to have your family practice the plan twice a year or whenever anyone in your home celebrates a birthday.

To find out more about Fire Prevention Week programs or to learn more about "Have Two Ways Out!" visit NFPA's Web site at www.firepreventionweek.org.

Be Aware of "Energy Vampires"

 

An "energy vampire" is an electronic appliance or device that still uses energy when it's plugged in, even if it's turned off. All of these monsters can eat up more power than a trick-or-treater generates after eating all of his candy!

 

Most energy vampires go into "standby" mode, where they continuously suck a trickle of electricity (called a "phantom load") to power features such as clocks, digital displays, timers, and LED status lights. Yes, that means your glowing microwave clock is actually a creature of the night!

 

Electronics that use remote controls (such as home entertainment systems and televisions) also drain power in standby mode because they need to detect when you click "on". However, devices without digital displays or clocks or that have a switch that physically breaks the circuit (such as most hair dryers and lamps) are not energy vampires.

 

How can a handful of energy vampires actually matter? Did you know that the typical modern household uses 20-40 energy vampire appliances? And they're hungry creatures. They account for 5-10% of a household's total electricity use. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, that adds up to about $100 per year for each household, or more than $10 billion in annual energy costs nationwide!
