Today marks the beginning of Fire Prevention Week! While every day is a good day to think fire safety, Fire Prevention Week is a good way to make sure fire safety is at the forefront of everyone’s mind.
This year’s theme is creating your home escape plan. The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) provides the following information on getting out of your home safely.
- Home escape planning and practice ensure that everyone knows what to do in a fire and is prepared to escape quickly and safely.
- Today’s homes burn faster than ever. You may have as little as two minutes to escape safely from the time the smoke alarm sounds.
- When the smoke alarm sounds in a real fire, it’s too late to start making a plan.
