Organizational Review Summary and Recommendations


Strategic Planning Measures







This year’s Fire Prevention Week campaign is “Fire won’t wait. Plan your escape.” The purpose of this years campaign is to educate all people of the simple and important actions they can take to help themselves and those around them stay safe from home fires.

During a fire you may have only a few minutes, or even less, to escape a fire in a residence from the time the smoke alarm sounds or someone notices. The ability to safely get out of a home during a fire is dependent on early warning from smoke alarms and advance planning like a fire escape route!

It’s important for everyone in your family to plan and practice a home fire escape. A mock fire incident (Fire drill) should be practiced with the entire family, so that everyone knows what to do if or when there is a fire. Every home is different, so every home fire escape plan will also be different. Have a plan for everyone in the home. Children, older adults, and people with disabilities may need assistance to wake up and get out. Make sure that someone will help them!

Please follow the links for some helpful materials that will assist you in planning an escape route and staying safe during a fire!
