CLOSE BEFORE YOU DOZE!

September 18, 2017

 

Fire is Getting Faster because of Synthetic Materials, furniture and new home construction is spreading faster than ever before. About 40 years ago, you had 17 minutes to escape from your home. Now, on average you have 3-5 minutes.  

 

Close your door at night! About half of all fire deaths occur when people are asleep between 11pm and 7am in the morning. Closing your bedroom door creates a barrier that could save your life and your family too. Keeping the door closed provides an environment that has increased oxygen, decreased Carbon Dioxide (Orderless and colorless gas), and temporary refuge from the high tempature of a fire.

 

If your house is on fire, make sure to close the front door when you escape. This will prevent unnecessary spreading of the fire.
