Fire Escape Planning

Is your fire escape plan complete?

In less than 30 seconds a small flame can get completely out of control and turn into a major fire. Most fires occur in the home when people are asleep. If you wake up to a fire, you won’t have time to grab valuables because fire spreads too quickly and the smoke is too thick. There is only time to escape.
