Timing Is Everything!


In 2004, The National Fire Protection Association commissioned Harris Interactive to conduct the Fire Prevention Week Survey. A telephone survey was conducted among 1,014 adults, aged 18 and older, living in private households in the continental United States. More specifically, the survey explored the following:

  Experiences with and knowledge of home smoke alarms;
  Experiences of those who have had fires in their homes;
  Use of and awareness of potential fire hazards and safety measures; 
  Risks of and preparedness for naturally occurring disasters.

While the majority of Americans have an escape plan in case of a fire, most have not practiced it. However, three-quarters believe they have 10 minutes or less until a fire turns deadly.  Almost nine in ten think they have 30 minutes or less before a fire in there home turns life threatening.

The video to the right shows how quickly fire can travel in a few minutes.
