Fire officials stress having a plan for National Fire Prevention week

College Station Fire Department, Domino's teaming up again to deliver pizzas, promote fire safety

"Developing and practicing a home escape plan is like building muscle memory", Deuman said. This includes having at least two different escape route options depending on where the fire is and making sure your fire alarms are functional. "Fire could occur upstairs, in your bedroom, in your hallway and that egress is blocked, so now the only way out is the window", said Maurice Wilson, Hampton Assistant Fire Chief. Teach them that "stop, drop, and roll" should only be used if their clothing catches fire.

In 2016, fires occurred in more than 15,000 homes in IL.

That's why students in Onalaska are getting some firsthand knowledge as part of National Fire Prevention Week. It is recommended to look for two ways out of every room in a home.

This is why fire officials stress the importance of having a plan. The NFPA website states that all of the windows and doors in a home should be able to be easily opened by all members of the house. The NFPA suggests a location such as a tree or mailbox. Without a solid fire escape plan, you are putting your life and your family's lives in danger.

For a city the size of Anderson, Cravens says he'd like to see the number of fires reduced by half.

"If you are cooking stay in the kitchen".

"We have multiple exits because we won't know where the fire is coming from, so you can't just say the fire started in this room, go out this way, it never seems to work like that", said Neal Braunel. "It is at an age when they are old enough to help their little brothers and sisters, also".

The FSC has been doing research and have created the "Close your Door" campaign.

All residents, businesses and community organizations are encouraged to practice their fire drill, take a photo and tag Barrie Fire on social media with the hashtag #FireDrillFriday. She told arriving firefighters her two dogs were still in the house and within minutes they emerged through the smoke carrying both canines to safety. If you touch the door and it is hot, do not open the door.

From touring the fire truck to learning what to look for when firefighters come around, Abigail agrees it's very important to learn these practices.

Many people think fire is something that happens to other people.
