Fire Prevention Week 2007NFPA :: Learning :: Public education :: Fire Prevention Week

This week is the National Fire Prevention Association’s Fire Prevention Week.� The theme for 2007 is “Practice Your Escape Plan.”� Since we recently practiced our escape plan, I don’t plan to now.� However, I encourage everyone to take a look at your plan, and if you don’t have one, make one.� Remember, the first priority in the event of a fire is to get people out safely.� Yes, you will miss any possessions that you can’t grab on the way out the door, but you would miss the people even more!

The NFPA website has lots of good resource information, including a blog that will run throughout the week.� There is also a downloadable grid that you can use to map out your escape plan.�

For Fire Prevention week in our house, we’ve tested the smoke detectors.� We found that one had a bad battery, so I changed the batteries in all of them.� Once again, I expect everyone to check in and let us know that their detectors are all in working order.� Do you all have good escape plans?�
