"It’s Fire Prevention Week. Have 2 Ways Out!" ... is NFPA’s official theme for Fire Prevention Week (FPW), October 7-13.
The reality is that when fire strikes, your home could be engulfed in smoke and flames in just a few minutes.
It's important to have a home fire escape plan that prepares your family to think fast and get out quickly when the smoke alarm sounds. What if your first escape route is blocked by smoke or flames? That's why having two ways out is such a key part of your plan. This year’s theme, “Have 2 Ways Out!”, focuses on the importance of fire escape planning and practice.
The above was excerpted from the NFPA's Fire Prevention Week website.
