Gurnee Residents: Fire Prevention

11/20/2017 (Permalink)

This year’s Fire Prevention Theme is “Every Second Counts: Plan 2 ways out!” The National Fire Protection Association encourages families with their children to:

  • Make a map of their home and find two exits from each room.
  • Make sure exits are not blocked
  • Have a meeting spot in the front of the home to meet if home experiences a fire
  • Practice a fire drill at least twice a year. They also suggest doing one drill during the day and one at night.
  • Make sure to teach children how they can escape on their own in case someone can’t help.
  • Close any windows or doors that you leave to try to slow smoke, fire, or heat.
  • Make sure address is clearly visible from front of structure and everyone knows how to call the fire department for help
  • Test smoke alarms once a month, and change batteries twice a year.

For great resources, and a grid to draw a map of your home go to National Fire Protection Association’s website here.
