A reminder about fire safety

Plan two ways out in case of fire What to do if smoke alarm sounds in the middle of the night

Fire Departments and the American Red Cross, both hosting campaigns to encourage fire safety, you can help mitigate your risk of becoming a victim in a few simple ways.

8-14 this year, and around the country officials are reminding residents about the importance of fire prevention.

It also includes two ways out of every room, usually a door and a window, with a clear path to an outside meeting place (such as a tree, light pole or mailbox) that is a safe distance from the home.

Fire spreads quickly, leaving people less than two minutes to get out safely once the smoke alarm sounds, according to the National Fire Protection Association. That's why it is important everyone has working smoke alarms in their home and they practice a home fire escape plan with everyone in their household before there's a fire, Landsborough said.

Saturday as the 10th Annual Fire Prevention Fest kicked off in Panama City. "So our firefighters will go out and inspect the site, let you know about the burn policies and procedures".

GET ALARMED! Did you know you can get a free fire alarm from your fire department?

"The could be anything from planning an escape plan, checking smoke detectors and even cooking safety stuff in the house".

"We really want everyone to come out and see the fire stations", said Chief Byron Herring. Youth will be able to experience the department's Mobile Prevention Experience Unit, enjoy a puppet show, try on firefighter gear and get an up-close view of fire apparatus. One drill should take place during the day, and another at night. Also, mark the location of each smoke alarm.
