E.D.I.T.H. (Exit Drills In The Home)
Most fatal home fires happen between midnight and 8 a.m. when most people are asleep. Toxic gases and heat —over 1000˚ F.—rise and can travel far ahead of the actual flames. When your smoke detector sounds, you may have less than 2 1/2 minutes to get out. Without an escape plan you have practiced, you may not make it. If you don’t have a smoke detector, you may never wake up.
Fire Safety Checklist
Every year throughout the United States during the holiday season tragedy strikes hundreds of families. Statistics show that fires related to candles, christmas trees, holiday lighting and portable space heaters cause a dramatic increase in residential fires between Thanksgiving and New Years. Clackamas Fire District #1 wants you to have a safe holiday season.
