Schools across the country took part in our annual Fire Safety Poster Campaign themed on this year’s Fire Prevention Week campaign, “Not Every Hero Wears a Cape. Plan and Practice Your Escape!”

The focus this year was to educate everyone about the small but important actions they can take to keep themselves and those around them safe. Did you know that in a typical home fire, you may have as little as one to two minutes to escape safely from the time the smoke alarm sounds? Escape planning and practice can help you make the most of the time you have, giving everyone enough time to get out. Take that first step towards being a hero in your home—plan and practice your escape!

The students all submitted excellent entries and we are excited to share this year’s winners!
