    Be Prepared with a Plan

    Today’s homes burn faster than ever. You may have as little as two minutes to safely
    escape a home fire from the time the smoke alarm sounds. Your ability to get out of a
    home during a fire depends on early warning from smoke alarms and advance planning.


    Since 1922, the NFPA has sponsored the public observance of Fire Prevention Week.
    In 1925, President Calvin Coolidge proclaimed Fire Prevention Week a national
    observance, making it the longest-running public health observance in our country.
    During Fire Prevention Week, children, adults, and teachers learn how to stay safe in
    case of a fire. Firefighters provide lifesaving public education in an effort to drastically
    decrease casualties caused by fires.


    Fire Prevention Week is observed each year during the week of October 9th in
    commemoration of the Great Chicago Fire, which began on October 8, 1871, and
    caused devastating damage. This horrific incident killed more than 250 people, left
    100,000 homeless, destroyed more than 17,400 structures, and burned more than
    2,000 acres of land.


    In a fire, mere seconds can mean the difference between a safe escape and a tragedy.
    Fire safety education isn’t just for school children. Teenagers, adults, and the elderly are
    also at risk in fires, making it important for every member of the community to take
    some time every October during Fire Prevention Week to make sure they understand
    how to stay safe in case of a fire.


    Remember the acronym PASS:
    Pull the pin.
    Aim low at the base of the fire.
    Squeeze the handle slowly.
    Sweep the nozzle side to side.


    Not all fire extinguishers will work on every fire. For home use, the NFPA recommends a
    multi-purpose device large enough to put out a small fire but not so heavy that it will be
    difficult to handle. Review the instructions once a year.
