Does EVERYONE in your family know how to get out of your home if it is on fire?
Sadly, two thirds of American households have not planned and practiced a home fire escape plan; leading to a tragic statistic: seven people die each day in home fires in our country.
To draw attention to this issue and to work to prevent this tragedy from happening in San Diego, beginning today and through September 29, the Fire Foundation is sponsoring a contest to encourage San Diegans to develop and practice their own Home Escape Plan.
Two $500 awards will be presented during Fire Prevention Week (Oct. 6-12)
All families in San Diego County are encouraged to create a home fire escape plan…and the Fire Foundation contest winners will get rewarded for it, too! Contest rules and instructions are available on our website: www.sdfirefoundation.org.
“Not Every Hero Wears a Cape. Plan and Practice Your Escape!”.
