Fire Prevention

Every day Americans experience the horrors of fire. Unfortunately, most people do not understand fire. Only when we know the true nature of fire can we prepare ourselves and our families.

Each year an unbelievable 4,500 Americans die and more than 30,000 others are injured in fires. Many of these are casualties and injuries which could be prevented. The United States Fire Administration believes that fire deaths can be reduced by teaching people the basic facts about fire.

Hawthorne currently utilizes the enhanced 911 emergency dialing system for the entire Borough.
