This year’s theme for Fire Prevention Week and the Fire Prevention Poster Contest is “Not every hero wears a cape. Plan and Practice your Escape.” According to the National Fire Protection Association you have as little as one to two minutes to escape a house fire. Having an escape plan and practicing emergency exit drills can be the difference between life and death in an emergency. Visit firepreventionweek.org for more info and poster ideas. Click the headline to print a copy of the poster rules. Posters must be turned in to Mr. Forbes or Mrs. Swanger by Sept. 27th. Hope to see some great posters, Little Panthers!
