With a fire escape plan, practicing the plan, and making sure quick releases are working can be a lifesaver. Practice Fire Safety everyday!!! great article

Pat Mieszala, Chair NFPA Education Section

Having two ways out, creating an escape plan and practicing the plan with everyone who lives in your home is so critical for everyone in case of a fire! Security bars, if necessary for crime prevention, with a quick release is equally critical to life safety! Good article and great reminder!!
