This year’s Fire Prevention Week theme was “Every Second Counts: Plan 2 Ways Out!” In a fire, seconds count. Seconds can mean the difference between residents escaping safely from a fire or having their lives end in tragedy. During Fire Prevention Week students were taught the importance of having an escape route mapped out and practiced so that all the members of the household are aware of what to do in the event of a fire in the home.
