Every Second Counts: Plan Two Ways Out
October is Fire Prevention Month and an excellent time to examine the emergency preparedness plans for your home and business.
- Do you have a fire escape plan?
- Have you changed your Smoke Alarm batteries within the last year?
- Are you prepared?
The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) sets aside a designated week each October to focus on Fire Prevention. This years theme is "Every Second Counts: Plan 2 ways out!"
According to the NFPA, once the fire alarm goes off "you have less than two minutes to get out safely," yet only 8% of people surveyed said getting out was the first thought after hearing the alarm. Creating, implementing, and practicing a fire escape plan for your home or business may be the difference between safety and tragedy. Make your plan today. Visit http://www.nfpa.org/fpw
