Fire Prevention Week a time for planning

  • Plan two ways out in case of fire

"Always have a planned with at least two ways out".

The Jacksonville Fire Department inducted a group of children as fire cadets Saturday after they each finished the firefighter challenge during the department's open house. So unblock your exits today! The Wichita Fire Department is reminding residents to prepare and practice an escape plan as part of Fire Prevention Week. You should have routes out of the valley identified ahead of time. Have everyone participate. Make changes to your plan if necessary. Walk through your home and inspect all possible exits and escape routes. They'll also receive fire hats and badges! A grid is available at www.nfpa.org to use as a guide.

Sills said the open house will become an annual tradition at the start of each Fire Prevention Week. If a fire occurs, close the doors behind you as you leave and call 911 from outside.

Hicks said the biggest problem his department sees is the removal of smoke detectors or their batteries. When one sounds, they all sound.

Choose an outside meeting place in front of your home. "Be sure your house numbers are easy to see". If not, paint it on the curb or install house numbers to ensure that responding emergency personnel can find your home.

That's why departments like De Pere Fire Rescue will be visiting students throughout the month, stressing the importance of safety. "Every second that passes, if you don't know what to do, the likelihood of you making it out safely decreases". The goal is to make a plan before there is an emergency and you are forced to think on your feet.

Meanwhile, adults should be double checking any of their appliances that generate heat, to make sure they work properly.

"You know safety sometimes can be considered by children to be boring, but if you put a little excitement into it and a little bit of fun, it really catches on and they learn very quickly", Nichols said.

But, a plan shouldn't just be drawn up and forgotten about - it needs to be practiced, too.

Once you're out, stay out! "So our firefighters will go out and inspect the site, let you know about the burn policies and procedures".

If you need help finding the right ones, the Des Moines Fire Department can help. Firefighters have the skills and equipment to perform rescues. Members from the Grand Rapids Fire Department joined WZZM 13 with some life saving tips.
