Chronicle staff

(MONROE, WA.) -- Snohomish County Fire District 7 will hold it's second open house of the month Sat. October 14th as part of National Fire Prevention Week, October 8-14.

The purpose of the week is to educate the public about the critical importance of developing a home escape plan and practicing it.

The open house will be held form 10 am to 2 pm at Station 31 located at 163 Village Court, Monroe, WA 98272.

At the event you'll find information for your family's safety about smoke alarms, live fire extinguisher training, firefighter challenge courses for the kids and more.

You can also chat with your Fire Chief and elected Fire Commissioners about the programs, training, and services Fire District 7 offers.

The importance of home escape plans

A home escape plan includes working smoke alarms on every level of the home, in every bedroom, and near all sleeping areas.

It also includes two ways out of every room, usually a door and a window, with a clear path to an outside meeting place (like a tree, light pole, or mailbox) that is a safe distance from the home.

"Developing and practicing a home escape plan is like building muscle memory," said a recent statement from the State Fire Marshall's office. "That pre-planning is what everyone will draw upon to snap into action and escape as quickly as possible in the event of a fire."

The National Fire Prevention Agency (NFPA) and the State Fire Marshal’s Office offer these additional tips and recommendations for developing and practicing a home escape plan:

Draw a map of your home with all members of your household, marking two exits from each room and a path to the outside from each exit.

Practice your home fire drill twice a year. Conduct one at night and one during the day with everyone in your home, and practice using different ways out.

Teach children how to escape on their own in case you can’t help them.

Make sure the address numbers of your home are clearly marked and easy for the fire department to find.

Close doors behind you as you leave — this may slow the spread of smoke, heat, and fire.

Once you get outside, stay outside. Never go back inside a burning building.
