It's National Fire Prevention Week. Is your North Fork home safe?

"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.

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.
