Fire Prevention Week : The 3 L's You Need To Know!
"Look, Listen, Learn"
These are the 3 Ls that the NFPA or National Fire Prevention Association states are necessary for you and your family to know and remember when it comes down to fire prevention and reaction.
This week is National Fire Prevention Week, and the theme is, “Look. Listen. Learn. Be aware. Fire can happen anywhere.™” Not only does this theme shed light on the how you can work toward preventing fires, but it is crucial to remember in the case that a fire does occur because it can help you determine how to react.
The NFPA States:
“Look” for places fire could start. Take a good look around your home. Identify potential fire hazards and take care of them.
“LISTEN” for the sound of the smoke alarm. You could have only minutes to escape safely once the smoke alarm sounds. Go to your outside meeting place, which should be a safe distance from the home and where everyone should know to meet.
“LEARN” two way out of every room and make sure all doors and windows leading outside open easily and are free of clutter.
Share this information with your friends and family and start getting prepared now, it can make all the difference if a fire does occur!
