National Fire Protection Association: 3 out of 5 ‘home fire’ deaths
in the US are the result of homes with NO smoke alarms.
BTW: The primary cause of death in a house fire = smoke inhalation.
Does your family have a ‘home fire escape plan’?
-Establish a plan or meeting place in the event of a house fire.
-Plan and practice an escape plan that includes multiple ways to safely evacuate your home…
NOTE: In the event that you cannot get out safely, fire officials recommend that you close the door of the room you are in and to place a blanket or towel under the door to keep the smoke out. At that point, you should move to a window and try to get the attention of firefighters. http://goo.gl/cf8Lft
