National Fire Prevention Week is observed in Canada, during the week (from Sunday to Saturday) in which October 9 falls.
This year’s FPW theme, “Not Every Hero Wears a Cape. Plan and Practice Your Escape!” is aimed at educating everyone about the small but important actions they can take to keep themselves and those around them safe.
If there is a fire in your home, you may have as little as one to two minutes to safely escape. Escape planning and practice can help you make the most of the time you have, giving everyone enough time to get out.
