People around the world will celebrate the coming New Year with food, beverages, dancing and fireworks. Some will attend public events with hundreds of other revelers, while others will head to smaller gatherings or celebrations in private homes. Watch night services, a traditional late-night worship service, will draw those who want to reflect on the past year and prepare for the year ahead.
Whether the event is big or small, private or public, fire safety should be part of the planning. NFPA’s escape planning safety tips sheet tells us that if a fire breaks out in the home, you may only have a few minutes to get out safely.
In addition to NFPA’s escape planning information, the Safety in Places of Public Assembly tips sheet provides information on how to prepare in case of an emergency in a public venue.
Making a toast to safety before the celebrating begins can provide a great start to a new year.
