Plan and Practice Your Escape
In a fire, mere seconds can mean the difference between a safe escape and a tragedy. In a typical home fire, you may have as little as one to two minutes to escape safely from the time the smoke alarm sounds. Escape planning and practice can help you make the most of the time you have,giving everyone enough time to get out. Fire safety education isn’t just for school children. Teenagers, adults, and the elderly are also at risk in fires, making it important for every member of the community to take some time every October during Fire Prevention Week to make sure they understand how to stay safe in case of a fire.
The first step to becoming a Fire Safety Hero is making your home escape plan.
