In a fire, seconds count. Seconds can mean the difference between residents of our communities escaping safely from a fire or having their lives end in tragedy. Sometimes there can be as little as two minutes to get out before it is too late. That’s why this year’s Fire Prevention Week theme: “Every Second Counts: Plan 2 Ways Out!” is so important. It reinforces why everyone needs to have an escape plan. 

During Fire Prevention Week, which runs from October 8 to 14, 2017, we encourage students in your community to participate in our Fire Safety Multimedia and Poster Contest.

Visit the contest page to find out how to participate.
