It’s Fire Prevention Week 2009, and the Laguna Beach Fire Department will hold an open house from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday and also mark National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Weekend. Community members are invited to visit your local fire station and meet firefighters, tour the station and fire engine, and find out how to be fire safe. “Stay Fire Smart — Don’t Get Burned” is the theme for Fire Prevention Week 2009. Firefighters are reminding parents to test the water before putting a child in the bath, and urging cooks to wear short or close-fitting sleeves when using the stove top, as two “common sense” ways to avoid getting burned.

"Watch what you heat!" That's the mantra for Fire Prevention Week, which starts Sunday. Coming on the heels of a potentially dangerous house fire Monday in Temple Hills, this is a timely warning from our local fire fighters. The emphasis for this year's observance is on the kitchen, where more fires start than any other place in the home, firefighters say. Laguna Beach firefighters are urging community members to take steps to make sure homes and businesses are fire safe.

It’s hard to get people’s attention with respect to the danger of fire at home or in the wildlands. It’s not something people want to think about — until they have to. And then, of course, it’s usually too late. Even in Laguna Beach — which suffered a devastating firestorm that consumed some 300 homes 14 years ago — neighborhood meetings by the Fire Department are typically poorly attended. Perhaps that’s why Cal Fire, the new name of the state Department of Forestry and Fire Protection, is proposing strict building guidelines for new homes in the wildfire zone.

Focusing on fire prevention The Laguna Beach Fire Department joins the National Fire Protection Assn. and fire departments across the nation to observe Fire Prevention Week, which begins Monday and ends Oct. 11. The focus is to reinforce three areas of fire safety: talking about and practicing a home fire escape plan, eliminating home fire hazards and installing/maintaining smoke detectors in your home. The fire department reports that recent information shows that about 85% of fire deaths occur in the home and the majority take place between the late night and early morning hours.

State grant money will enable city leaders to plan $4 million in improvements to Heisler Park, City Manager Ken Frank said. Erosion has begun to eat away at the bluff-top park, which was developed in the 1930s, and the aging, narrow pathways to Picnic Beach don't meet modern standards of access for handicapped visitors. On Sept. 26, the California Coastal Conservancy handed $225,000 to the city to fund half of a design study for the work. The city will toss in another $225,000 to complete funding for that study.
