Find out what people say when Sparky asks, “How much time do you have to escape a home fire?”

By Susan McKelvey

People may have as little as one to two minutes to safely escape a home fire from the time the smoke alarm sounds. That’s information everyone should know. Unfortunately, not everyone does. As you’ll see in this “Smoke Alarm Smarts” video – the second in our weekly series of four leading up to Fire Prevention Week – when Sparky the Fire Dog® asks people how long they have to safely escape a home fire from the time the smoke alarm sounds, he gets lots of different answers.

As Fire Prevention Week fast-approaches, we’re working to promote basic but vital smoke alarm messages. Please help us spread the word by sharing this video on your website and/or social media.

For more information on Fire Prevention Week 2015, October 4-10, and this year’s theme, “Hear the Beep Where You Sleep: Every Bedroom Needs a Working Smoke Alarm”, visit www.firepreventionweek.org.
