Fire Prevention Safety Report
As Fire Prevention Week approaches, The WFD is teaming up with the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) – the official sponsor of Fire Prevention Week for more than 90 years – to promote this year’s campaign entitled, “Not every hero wears a cape. Plan and Practice Your Escape.”
The campaign works to educate everyone about the small but important actions they can take to keep themselves and those around them safe. On average, seven people died in a fire in a home per day from 2012 to 2016.
“Situational awareness is a skill people need to use wherever they go,” said WFD 2nd Assistant Chief Mike Contaxis. “No matter where you are, look for available exits. If the alarm system sounds, take it seriously and exit the building immediately.”
