Plan Your Summer Escape Now
June 7, 2019

As the school-year comes to an end and the kids will be home for the’s a great time to review and practice your home exit fire escape plan.

In the event of a fire, remember that every second counts, so you and your family must always be prepared. Escape plans help you get out of your home quickly. In less than 30 seconds, a small flame can get completely out of control and turn into a major fire. It only takes minutes for a house to fill with thick black smoke and become engulfed in flames.

Prepare and practice your fire escape plan at least twice a year with everyone in your household, including children and people with disabilities.

Please plan for alternative evacuation routes. Your best suited escape route might be blocked by fire or smoke.
