Fire Prevention Week is October 6-12, 2019. This year’s theme is “Not every hero wears a cape. Plan and practice your escape!” Remember to make a home escape plan with all members of your household and practice it. Practice your fire escape plan twice a year with all members of your household. Create different fire scenarios for practicing your home fire escape plan, such as blocking some exits and conducting a fire drill in the dark. Develop a plan for each situation. Remember that a home escape plan includes an outside meeting place in front of your home where everyone will meet upon exiting the home. Pick a stationary location in front of your home like a tree, mailbox or light post.
