Since 1922, the National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA) has sponsored the public observance of Fire Prevention Week which is October 6th-12th this year. This year’s theme is:
“Not Every Hero Wears a Cape. Plan and Practice Your Escape!”
This year’s campaign works to educate everyone about the small but important actions they can take to keep themselves and those around them safe!
Did you know?
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.
Plan ahead for your escape. Make your home escape plan and practice today.
