Seconds count: plan two ways out!

Blog Post created by faithberry Employee on Aug 16, 2017

The campaign message for NFPA’s Fire Prevention Week October 8-14, 2017 is, “Every Second Counts Plan Two Ways Out!”.  This year’s Fire Prevention Week theme stresses the importance of everyone having an escape plan.  Having a good plan in place can make all the difference in your survival from fire. 


Because every year, wildfires burn across the U.S., and more people are living where wildfires are a real risk, NFPA’s Wildfire Division has developed a tear sheet, “Seconds count: plan two ways out”.  This new product is a pad with 100 tear sheets that features a fun maze activity that can be used with children.  Children love mazes which makes this new product a great conversation starter for families on planning to evacuate before a wildfire occurs. Be sure to check out NFPA’s FPW products. Order early to receive your materials in time for Fire Prevention Week.


NFPA also has free downloadable products for Fire Prevention Week and for wildfire preparedness.  Make sure that kids and parents in your community understand the need to plan for fires wherever they are, indoors or out.
