Every second counts during a fire. In just a matter of moments, a small flame can turn into a major fire. Be prepared and have a fire escape plan in place, to increase your chance of survival. The best way to be prepared is having a fire escape plan and working smoke detectors in place.

The National Fire Protection Association designates one week in October to focus on fire prevention. This year, it begins on Sunday, October 8th and ends on Saturday, October 14th. Their theme this year is “Every Second Counts: Plan 2 Ways Out!”

Fire Escape Planning Tips:

  • Draw map of your home
  • Consider escape ladders for sleeping areas on upper levels
  • Choose an outside meeting place
  • Teach children how to escape on their own
  • Practice your fire escape plan during the day and at night

SERVPRO® of Marshall, Sedalia, and Columbia wants you to stay safe. If your home or business suffers fire or smoke damage, contact SERVPRO® of Marshall, Sedalia, and Columbia to help make it “Like it never even happened.”
