"Being prepared is one of the biggest things is creating a family fire safety plan. This would be utilized in the event of a fire so that all family members know what to do and where to go. In addition, in the event of a fire it is important to realize that the air will be filled with smoke and breathing this air will be a danger. In addition to the dangers of fire, one of the leading causes of death in a fire is from inhaling smoke.

To assist families in being safe in a fire, and more importantly to prevent fires, we have put together the following resources. Please feel free to use this information to keep your family safe. Also, share the information with others who can benefit from this page. And, most importantly – stay safe!"
