The San Diego Fire-Rescue Department (SDFD) is teaming up the San Diego Fire Rescue Foundation during Fire Prevention Week, October 7-13, to focus on the importance of fire escape planning and practice and to “Have Two Ways Out!”
According to a write-up on ScoopSanDiego.com, city fire officials are reminding residents that they have much less time than most people think to escape a fire. That's why it's vital to plan and practice a home escape route.
During the eight open houses planned in San Diego during Fire Prevention Week, activities will vary from station to station. Among the plans are fire station tours, interactive demonstrations with the Kid’s Fire Safety Trailer, CPR demonstrations and firefighter exercises such as rappelling. Through these educational, family-oriented activities, residents can learn more about the importance of fire escape planning and practice, as well as the power of prevention. There will also be stickers, brochures, magnets, hats, and Home Fire Escape Plans, provided courtesy of the San Diego Fire Rescue Foundation, San Diego Gas and Electric and HarBro Construction and Consulting.
