• Developing A Home Fire Drill 

    When fire strikes…you may have less than one minute to safely get out of the building. Knowing what to do can mean the difference between life and death!

    Most fatal fires occur in the home. Having working smoke alarms and planning and practicing home fire escape drills can reduce your risk of injury or death.

    Children practice fire drills in school at least four times each year. Do you practice how to react to fire in your home? You should! Fires are fast. Fires double in size every minute. Fires are dark. They are not like what you see on television or in the movies. Fires create thick, black, choking smoke which can make it impossible to see and breathe. 

    Below you will see a blueprint for putting together your very own fire escape plan and since your kids have tons of practice from school, simply review the plan and let them teach you parents how its done and most importantly, have fun!
