If a fire breaks out in a home, residents may only have minutes to get out safely. Seconds count. Seconds can mean the difference between people escaping safely from fire or having their lives end in tragedy. A critical part of escaping safely is for families and communities to create a home fire escape plan. NFPA makes the task a simple one with the free, downloadable “Home Fire Escape Plan and Grid.” The two-page sheet is a fitting companion piece to NFPA’s Fire Prevention Week in a Box Value Pack, which offers a number of items for educational presentations for Fire Prevention Week.
