Fire Prevention Week: "Every Second Counts: Plan 2 Ways Out!"

  • Fire Prevention Week:

"Practice an escape plan before there's a fire so you can get out safely".

This year the theme is "Every Second Counts: Plan 2 Ways Out". Obviously your first line of defense is going to be a smoke detector, and you're going to want to try and get out of the door calmly, but in a fire, as I said earlier, things can be very rapid and change fast. "Families should also have home fire drills so they can practice their home escape plans", said Ostroskey.

"At least two escape plans to get out of the house, once you get out do not go back in", said Ingebretson.

On Saturday at the Kansas City fire department gave out smoke alarms at a local Sunfresh grocery store.

"If there would be a fire in the next room, it could be completely gutted out", he said. "So our firefighters will go out and inspect the site, let you know about the burn policies and procedures".

Tell guests or visitors to your home about your family's fire escape plan.

According to the National Fire Prevention Association, this week was chosen because of the Great Chicago Fire that began October 8, 1871 and did most of its damage October 9.

Horry County Fire Rescue kicked off Fire Prevention Week with a community safety event in Aynor.

Identify all possible exits (doors and windows) and make sure they work.

The National Fire Protection Agency is stressing the importance of not only thinking of two ways out, but to practice the plan.

"In a typical home fire, you may have as little as one to two minutes to escape safely from the time the smoke alarm sounds", states the Town of Banff website.

The Summit Fire Department will be conducting fire prevention presentations during the month of October at Summit schools, senior centers, and community events. So check your smoke detectors.

Join us at 1200 Kentucky Street anytime from 5 to 8 p.m. Hope to see you there!

Safety events during Fire Prevention Week are scheduled in Adams, Cowlitz, Douglas, Franklin, Grant, Grays Harbor, Island, King, Mason, Pierce, San Juan, Skagit, Snohomish, Spokane, Thurston and Whatcom counties. They can also answer other fire questions you may have. Practice using different ways out and show children how to escape on their own, in case adults can't help them.
