Fire won’t wait. Plan your escape.
October 9 to 15, 2022 is Fire Prevention Week, the theme is “Fire won’t wait. Plan your escape”. Did you know that today’s homes burn faster than ever. If a fire starts you may have as little as two minutes (or even less time) to safely escape a home fire from the time the smoke alarm sounds. Your ability to get out of a home during a fire depends on early warning from working smoke alarms and advance planning. Most important of all be fire safe everyday to prevent a fire from starting.
