Every Second Counts. Plan Two Ways Out!
Fire Prevention Week is Oct. 8-14
Fire Prevention Week 2017 logoIn a typical home fire, you may have as little as one to two minutes to escape safely from the time the smoke alarm sounds. With a good escape plan, everyone in the household will know how to use that small window of time wisely.

This Fire Prevention Week, plan two ways out of every room in your home (that could include doors and windows) and designate a place to meet outside and away from the building. Discuss the plan with family members and practice using different ways out.

Learn how to create a fire escape plan and practice it with everyone in your household.
