In a fire, seconds count. Seconds can mean the difference between residents of our community escaping safely from a fire or having their lives end in tragedy.

That’s why this year’s Fire Prevention Week theme: “Every Second Counts: Plan 2 Ways Out!” is so important. It reinforces why everyone needs to have an escape plan. Here’s this year’s key campaign messages:

  • Draw a map of your home with all members of your household, 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.
