Every Second Counts – Plan 2 Ways Out is this year’s Fire Prevention Week campaign, which emphasizes the importance of developing a home fire escape plan and practising it. Fire Prevention Week is recognized across North America from Sunday, October 8 – Saturday, October 14, 2017.

A home escape plan means having a working smoke alarm on every level of your home, in every bedroom, and near all sleeping areas. It also means having two ways out of every room, such as a door and a window, each with a clear path to a safe meeting place outside the home. Learn more.
