October 7 - 13
In honor of National Fire Prevention Week, October 7-13, the American Red Cross is urging people to take steps to protect their homes and loved ones today.
The theme of this year’s Fire Prevention Week is “Have Two Ways Out,” and the Red Cross recommends that households develop a fire escape plan and practice it at least twice a year with everyone who lives in the home. People should know two ways to escape from every room and designate a place to meet outside the home in case of a fire.
