Every year a new theme is chosen for Fire Prevention Week which is held in early October to promote good safety habits. This year’s 2014 Fire Prevention week theme was Close the Door. Most people remember Stop, Drop, & Roll when they think of fire safety, but did you know that the simple act of sleeping with your bedroom door closed could help save your life in case of a fire? That’s right.
While the room temperature of the fireside of a door can reach up to 700 degrees, the room temperature behind the closed door can be below 90 degrees and allow you to stay in manageable temperatures until help can arrive. To learn more about the Close the Door concept and to help teach good safety habits for the coming year to your children, be sure and watch the all new Thunder TV News Video at WMSRradio.com.
