Most people who die in fires die from the toxic gases, thick black smoke, and lack of oxygen. In a fire, breathing even small amounts of these toxic elements can disorient someone, causing them to pass out. Remember smoke detectors save lives. The time to react to a fire/ smoke alarm is when it first goes off.
This presentation will describe what to do in the event of a fire. Participants will be taught why fire drills are important and how to plan, practice and review their drills.
