This year’s Fire Prevention Week theme, “Not Every Hero Wears a Cape. Plan and Practice Your Escape!” works to educate everyone about the small but important actions they can take to keep themselves and those around them safe.
It's easy to take that first step - make your home escape plan!
1. Draw a floor plan or map of your house showing all windows and doors.
2. Mark two exits from each room.
3. Choose an outside meeting place.
4. Practice your plan two times per year.
Home escape planning and practice ensures 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.
