This week’s message, Home Fire Escape Plans

Every second counts! If a fire occurred in your home tonight, would your family get out safely? A fast, pre-planned escape is critical to survival. The pdf caregiver fact sheet below provides simple steps to develop a home fire escape plan.
The fire safety message and affiliated content is derived from the Hamilton Fire Department, Office of the Ontario Fire Marshal, and the National Fire Prevention Association.
