The Importance of Having a Fire Escape Plan

10/15/2018 (Permalink)

Fire prevention month is in full swing, so what better time to start developing your family's Fire Escape Plan.  Creating a fire escape plan that everyone in your household knows and has practiced can make all the difference if a fire threatens your home.  Below are some facts on Fire Escape Planning provided by the National Fire Protection Association.

Escape Planning:

  • According to an NFPA survey, only one in every three American households has actually developed and practiced a home fire-escape plan.
  • While 71% of Americans have an escape plan in case of a fire, only 47% of them have practiced it.
  • One-third of American households who made an estimate thought they would have at least six minutes before a fire in their home became threatening. The time available is often less. And only eight% said their first thought upon hearing a smoke alarm would be to get out.
