Not every hero wears a cape.

PLAN and PRACTICE your ESCAPE!


This year’s FPW campaign, “Not Every Hero Wears a Cape. Plan and Practice Your Escape!” works to educate everyone about the small but important actions they can take to keep themselves and those around them safe.

Did you know?
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.


Plan ahead for your escape!

  • Plan Your Escape Route
  • ​Test Your Smoke Alarms
  • Choose an Outside Meeting Place​
  • ​Make a Regular Reminder
  • ​Practice Home Fire Drill
