October 8th through 14th is Fire Prevention Week!  This year’s Fire Prevention Week campaign is “Every Second Counts – Plan Two Ways Out!” According to a survey conducted by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), nearly 75% of Americans have created an escape plan in case of a fire at home. However, less than half of those people have ever practiced their plans. NFPA recommends practicing your home escape plan with the entire family at least twice a year. The graphic below shows the 7 steps to creating and practicing an effective escape route for your home or business, in the event of a fire.  Additional escape route planning tips and planning grid are available in the documents linked below this article.
