PSA - Develop and Practice a Home Escape Plan - Calgary Fire Department
October 11, 2012 01:03 PM Category: Fire
As Fire Prevention Week continues, the Calgary Fire Department wants to remind and encourage Calgarians to develop and practice a home escape plan. In 2011, CFD responded to a total of 1,860 fire incidents in which three fatalities were reported. In the deaths caused by residential fire in 2011, smoke alarms were not present in the dwellings, a crucial fact that could have helped to prevent the loss of lives.
The Calgary Fire Department is actively informing Calgarians that it is critical to develop an escape plan so that every family member is able to react quickly and get out safely.
Some advice to follow:
Install and maintain smoke alarms
Plan all exits
Practice your escape plan
