  • Plan two ways out in case of fire

Items that block doors and windows in your home could keep you from escaping in the event of a home fire.

8-14 this year, and around the country officials are reminding residents about the importance of fire prevention.

"A home escape plan includes working smoke alarms on every level of the home, in every bedroom, and near all sleeping areas", according to a news release from the state Fire Marshal's Office.

^ Close doors behind when leaving - this may slow the spread of smoke, heat and fire. Parents and their children should recognize the sound of the smoke alarm and immediately get out of the house and assemble at a pre-determined location, he said.

Cambridge fire department will have a display set up at Cambridge Centre for Fire Prevention Week.

Each year, Fire Prevention Week is held to bring awareness to the dangers associated with fire. "Re-entering a burning building is treacherous, and can deliver crippling, if not fatal consequences".

So it's very important to make sure everyone in your family, even the little ones, knows how to get out quickly.

The call by the Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection comes as National Fire Prevention Week begins on Sunday.
