Very few of us realize how easily — and how quickly — fire can harm our loved ones. Fortunately there is a simple, affordable way to help prevent this from happening: INSTALL A SMOKE DETECTOR. ADDITIONALLY, DEVELOP A FIRE ESCAPE PLAN AND PRACTICE IT AT LEAST TWICE A YEAR.

According to FEMA, more than 4,000 Americans die and more than 20,000 are injured as a result of fires – many of which could be prevented. When there is a fire, do not waste time gathering valuables or making a phone call. Fires can spread quickly, becoming life threatening in two minutes and engulfing a residence in as little as five minutes. While flames are dangerous, heat and smoke can be more dangerous and can sear your lungs. Remember, the leading cause of fire-related deaths is asphyxiation, outnumbering burns by a three-to-one ratio.

Are you doing the right thing, the wrong way?

Are you doing the right thing the wrong way - for example, trying to eliminate the fire hazards around your home and in the process starting a wildland fire? Each year CAL FIRE responds to more than 1,600 fires started by Californians using equipment the wrong way.

As the weather warms, citizens are turning their attention to in-home spring cleaning, as well as, outdoor projects and play. The Angwin Volunteer Fire Department says the risk of injury can be greatly reduced by following simple safety steps inside and outside the home:

•Fire is not the way to get rid of yard waste. Leaf burning and general yard waste burning is not permitted.
•When using ladders, check for safe and proper placement. Be aware of any obstructions - overhead wires and tree branches.
•Rake before you mow to prevent any stones and loose debris from launching into the air.
•Never operate a mower in your bare feet and avoid wearing loose clothing.

• Wet floors
REMEMBER, FALL PREVENTION IS UP TO YOU!

Discuss the following topics:
Always sleep with the bedroom doors closed. This will keep deadly heat and smoke out of bedrooms, giving you additional time to escape.
Find a way for everyone to sound a family alarm. Yelling, pounding on walls, whistles, etc. Practice yelling
"FIRE!"
In a fire, time is critical. Don't waste time getting dressed, don't search for pets or valuables. Just get out!
Roll out of bed. Stay low. One breath of smoke or gases may be enough to kill.
