"Two" is One Key to Escaping A House Fire

Here's why the number two is at the center of this year's National Fire Prevention Week.

This is National Fire Prevention week. Fire departments all over the country, including Berwyn, Paoli and Radnor are using the theme of this year's campaign to urge you to have two exits from every room in your home.

At the center of the campaign is practicin family fire escape plans and making sure everyone in your home knows two ways to get out in case of fire. In most cases that means a door and window.  It could be different for every room in every home, so fire departments urge you to actually make-and practice- family fire escape plans.

You can read much more about how to plan and practice and what to think about NOW before disaster strikes here on the Berwyn Fire Company website.

Having two ways out it vital. In many cases, houses have second floor bedrooms. Jumping maybe dangerous. Escape ladders can be purchased from stores like Home Depot, Lowes, True Value adn probably plenty of places on line. Be Prepared!
