Phoenix Fire Celebrates 100th Anniversary of Fire Prevention Week 7:00:00 AM PREVENTION COVER PHOTO.pngPhoenix Fire Celebrates 100th Anniversary of Fire Prevention Week<div class="ExternalClass6DB9A428333C4AF88D0DD6A726B193F9"><html> <p></p> <p> </p>This week, the Phoenix Fire Department is proud and excited to join the NFPA in celebrating the 100th anniversary of Fire Prevention WeekTM  (FPW). <br><br>The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) is a global self-funded nonprofit organization, established in 1896, devoted to eliminating death, injury, property and economic loss due to fire, electrical and related hazards.<br><br>This year's FPW campaign, “Fire won't wait. Plan your escape™", works to educate everyone about simple but important actions they can take to keep themselves and those around them safe from home fires.<br><br>Today's homes burn faster than ever. You could have as little as two minutes (or even less) to safely escape a home fire from the time the smoke alarm sounds. The ability to get out of a home safely during a fire depends on early warning from smoke alarms and advance planning.<br><br>Because of that, the Phoenix Fire Department strongly encourages everyone to plan and practice in the event of a house fire. Everyone needs to be prepared in advance, so that they know what to do when the smoke alarm sounds. <br><br>The NFPA has created home fire escape plans in both <a target="_blank" href="">English </a>and <a target="_blank" href="">Spanish</a>. These can be filled customized and tailored, given that every home is different. <br><br>In addition to an escape plan, smoke detectors are another life saving tool. Smoke alarms can often be a determining factor between life and death when it comes to fires. <br><br>That's why the Phoenix Fire Department hosts regular smoke detector walks throughout the community. In honor of the 100th anniversary of Fire Prevention Week, the Phoenix Fire Department and its community partners; including the Arizona Burn Foundation, Mercy Care, and the Phoenix Fire Foundation will host a smoke detector walk in Maryvale this Saturday October 15th. <br><br>Smoke alarms can sense smoke well before you can, alerting you to danger. They should be in every bedroom, outside of the sleeping areas (like a hallway), and on each level (including the basement) of your home. <br><br>Stay tuned throughout Fire Prevention Week, as the Phoenix Fire Department will share more information about how you can prevent fires and keep your family safe. <br><br>Learn more: <a target="_blank" href=""></a><br><br><br>​<br><br></html></div>
Community Assistance Program (CAP) Outreach Survey Results 7:00:00 AM cap van.jpgCommunity Assistance Program (CAP) Outreach Survey Results<div class="ExternalClass17B66475EE064AFF9A1847BDA66FD7AA"><html> <p>​</p>When you need help, where do you turn? The police? The fire department? Someone else? That is the question many Phoenix residents have when dealing with a crisis. Sometimes it's not clear what is the right place to call for help, especially when the issue involves someone having a mental health crisis or dealing with substance use. <br><br>That's where the City of Phoenix Community Assistance Program (CAP) comes in. <br><br>CAP is the City's program to respond to mental and behavioral health issues that might otherwise be addressed by police or fire department personnel.<br><br>Earlier this year, the city of Phoenix worked diligently to collect feedback regarding the expansion of the Community Assistance Program. That expansion made possible after the Phoenix City Council and Mayor Kate Gallego approved $15 Million in 2021. That money dedicated to improve the response to behavior and mental health calls throughout the City of Phoenix<br><br>During this research with the community, the City Council approved the expansion of a contract with Gunn Communications Inc. (GCI) to implement a strategic outreach approach to gather public input and feedback to help shape the expansion of the CAP.<br><br>The study team attended more than 30 different community events within the City of Phoenix resulting in a total of 1,663 surveys.<br><br>The main purpose of the outreach was to collect feedback from members of the community on what they believed would be crucial in the expansion and success of CAP. <br><br>GCI, with the help of CAP and the City Manager's office, composed a 10-question survey that was made available in paper and digital format. The survey was officially launched at the February 26 Emergency Rental Assistance event and remained accessible until April 30, 2022. All surveys were made available in English and Spanish and are included in the appendix. Results from the survey can be found in this <a target="_blank" href="/firesite/Documents/CAP%20-%20Community%20Assistance%20Program%20Survey%20Summary%202022.pdf">compiled report​</a>. <br><br><br><p><br></p></html></div>
