Educate your family about fire safety this October

Does your family know what to do in the event of a fire inside your home? Do you have escape plans? Right now 85% of families surveyed don’t have or practice a home fire escape plan. But it’s easy to do and as we enter Fire Prevention Week, it’s a good time to implement a plan.

This year’s Fire Prevention Week Theme is “Every Second Counts: Plan 2 Ways Out!”  Download a home fire escape map and practice it with your family twice a year. Create an escape plan with your family with this easy printout.

Operation Save A Life is a national award winning public awareness campaign targeting fire safety and prevention. It’s a partnership between WOTV 4, Kidde Fire Safety, West Michigan Fire Departments and E.S.C.A.P.E. Fire Safety.
