Did you know that more than 3,400 Americans die each year in fires, and approximately 17,500 are injured?  (source: USFA) Fire is scary.  It can spread very quickly and cause horrible damage.  In less than 30 seconds a small flame can get completely out of control and turn into a major fire.  It only takes minutes for a house to fill with thick black smoke and become engulfed in flames.  (source: USFA) But the saddest part about all this is that many of these deaths and injuries are avoidable.

In the event of a fire, remember – time is the biggest enemy and every second counts! Escape plans help you get out of your home quickly.

Do you have a fire escape plan for your family?  Have you practiced it with your kids?

If not, it really is a simple, quick project!

For your plan you’ll need:

  • 2 ways out of each room
  • To make sure what is needed to get out (ie a ladder…this is the one we use) is located near the exits
  • A meeting place outside (but near) your home

 

For the practice you’ll need to:

  • Make sure everyone in your family can open the windows in your home
  • Check doors for heat
  • Crawl low to the ground if there is smoke
  • Close doors as you go to keep the fire from spreading
  • Stop, drop and roll if your clothes catch on fire

Please call 311 is you have any questions or concerns.   To get more information, please visit: Fire Escape Plan

Nation West is here for you. In the event of a claim, please call: 877-331-7971.
