Fire Prevention Week: "Every Seconds Counts-Plan 2 Ways Out!"

Fire Prevention Week: "Every Seconds Counts-Plan 2 Ways Out!" 

As fires burn out of control throughout the state, CAL-FIRE reminds residents this is fire prevention week, and that this year’s theme is “Every Second Counts-Plan 2 Ways Out!” Did you know that only one-third of Americans have created and practiced a home fire escape plan? Almost three-quarters of Americans have a wildfire escape plan; however, less than half ever practice it? With these statistics, it’s time to stop being complacent and get the ball rolling in creating a home escape plan for you and your family and more importantly practicing it. CAL-FIRE says to take time now to create an escape plan with your family and practice that plan twice a year. Knowing what to do and where to go can save precious seconds, helping you and your family escape safely without tragedy. For more information visit the CAL-FIRE website.
