Fire Prevention Week October 8-14

Fire Prevention Week 2017
In a fire, seconds count. Seconds can mean the difference between people escaping from a fire safely or having their lives end in tragedy. That’s why this year’s theme, EVERY SECOND COUNTS - PLAN 2 WAYS OUT! - is so important. It reinforces why everyone needs to have an escape plan.

Here are this year’s key messages:

  • Draw a map of your home with all members of your household, marking two exits from each room, and a path to the outside from each exit.
  • Practice your home fire drill twice a year. Conduct one at night and one during the day with everyone in your home, and practice using different ways out.
  • Teach children how to escape on their own in case you can’t help them.
  • Make sure the number of your home is clearly marked and easy for the fire department to find.
    Close doors behind you as you leave – this may slow the spread of smoke, heat, and fire.
  • Once you get outside, stay outside. Never go back inside a burning building.

Education tools for teachers and families including free downloads are available at firepreventionweek.org.
