Does Your Family Have a Fire Escape Plan?
Most people do not spend a lot of time considering what they would do if there were a fire in their home. Consider though that the American Red Cross responded to more than 74,000 disasters in communities across the United States last year and 93 percent of these were fire related.
Having an escape plan is an important part of fire safety. According to the American Red Cross, only 26 percent of families have actually developed and practiced a home fire escape plan. You don't want to wait for an actual fire to find out if your family can escape.
Eighty percent of Americans don’t realize that home fires are the single most common disaster across the nation.
It's important to remember children under five and adults over 65 are more than twice as likely to die in a home fire than the rest of the US population.
Make a plan and ensure everyone in your home knows what to do. Smoke detectors, fire extinguishers and escape plans are all part of saving lives. After a fire, and after everyone is safe, give the damage your immediate attention.
