Fire department advises two fire escape routes

Fire department advises two fire escape routes

"Work with a fire drill and it takes a few minutes to sit down, press the smoke alarm, test the smoke alarm and then you work on getting outside and finding a meeting spot", said Stuart Hammer, fire inspector.

According to a survey conducted by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), three-quarters of Americans have created an escape plan in case of a fire at home.

Today the Office of the Fire Marshal and Emergency Management kicked off Fire Prevention Week 2017 with a timely reminder: "Every Second Counts: Plan 2 Ways Out!"

-Close doors behind you as you leave - this may slow the spread of smoke, heat and fire. "We need to make sure they have a way out and they can be safe". "The goal of Fire Prevention Week is to educated the public on the importance of fire safety education".

Now, before a fire happens, is the time to prepare one and to practice using it. In conjunction, Rowan University and the Glassboro Fire Department have advice for students on ways to prevent and respond to a fire.

The Oct. 14 event will start at 10 a.m. and run until 1 p.m., at 410-428 Green Bay Road, where the two departments are housed, Fire Chief Alan Berkowsky said. The Fire Safety Trailer is used to educate children and adults on home safety practices and escape plans. "You don't have to be a fire inspector to do an inspection at your home", said Nugent. Newer homes are built with lightweight materials that burn faster than older home constructions.

"You never know where fire might occur".

Also, a "courtesy home inspection" is available to residents.

If the smoke alarms are working in the home the pizza is free.

"No matter where you're at in that home, whether you're a child, an elderly person or anybody else in the home, they should know if that doors blocked, I can go out this door or that window". "Siemens is on the cutting edge of developing these safety products that provide critical safeguards from fires across residential, commercial, and industrial settings and we are thrilled to partner with them again on this essential campaign".
