Fire Prevention Week



Published:

fire prevention weekFire Prevention Week is October 7-13, 2012. Does your family have two ways out?

The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) is encouraging families to find time during Fire Prevention Week to plan two ways out of their homes in case of fire. When planning escape routes, it’s best to have two options so that if one exit is blocked by smoke or fire there’s still a way to exit safely.  Be sure to practice as a family, too. Safety tips from NFPA include having a meeting place outside and practicing your escape plan twice a year.

What tips and reminders do you give your children to keep them safe from fire? Have they learned about fire safety in school?
