Fire Damage Fire Prevention Week October 8-14 Sparky the Fire Dog helps kids practice a safe escape!

Sunday, October 8, marks the start of the 2017 Fire Prevention Week. This year's National Fire Protection Association theme is "Every Second Counts:Plan 2 Ways Out!"

NFPA suggests families plan two ways to exit every  room in your house, especially kids' bedrooms. They suggest:

  • Draw a map of your home marking two exits from each room and a path to the outside from each exit
  • Practice your home fire drill twice a year. Conduct one at night and one during the day with everyone in your home, and practice using different ways out.
  • Teach children how to escape on their own in case you can’t help them.
  • Make sure the number of your home is clearly marked and easy for the fire department to find.
  • Close doors behind you as you leave – this may slow the spread of smoke, heat, and fire.
  • Once you get outside, stay outside. Never go back inside a burning building.
