In a “Kids in Action” video on PBS Kids, the Friedman family of Rhode Island talks about how they safely evacuated their home during a fire and how they’ve recovered from the experience.

Ten-year-old Jonah (pictured) tells of the frightening moments of waking up to the smell of smoke the night of the fire and then running into his parentsroom to tell his mother, Brook. She and the three boys got out safely. Brook’s husband was traveling for work.

In the video the family talked about how they followed their escape plan by leaving the house immediately and going to their designated meeting place, a neighbor’s house, and waiting there for the fire department to arrive.

The children talked about the toys they lost in the fire and how relieved they were that their pets were okay. Since the fire the family has changed their smoke alarms and test them every month. Their escape plan keeps them from worrying, Brook said.

Public Education Division Senior Project Manager Amy LeBeau wrote a column on the Friedman’s experience in the January/February 2013 issue of NFPA Journal.
