October 6-12: Fire Prevention Week
“Not Every Hero Wears a Cape. Plan and Practice Your Escape” is the 2019 theme for Fire Prevention Week, which serves to educate everyone about the small but important actions they can take to keep themselves and those around them safe.
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.
Check out how to make your home escape plan and practice it today. Visit www.firepreventionweek.org for more information on the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and the Fire Prevention Week campaign.
