Did you know that 40 years ago you had at least 17 minutes to escape from a house fire?

Today you only have 3 minutes. It has to do with the materials in our furniture and building materials today. Today’s fires burn hotter and grow fast. Practice your home escape plan with your family and get out quick. Know two ways out of every room!
