The Red Cross also recommends that households develop a fire escape plan and practice it at least twice a year. People should know two ways to escape from every room and designate a place to meet outside the home in case of a fire. When your house is on fire, get out, stay out and call 911.
The message is clear: Fires can be deadly. Make sure you and your family are ready in the event of a fire.
A few minutes now could save your life or the life of a loved one when disaster strikes.
