Berwyn Fire Co. Reminds the T-E Community: Not Every Hero Wears a Cape. Plan and Practice Your Escape!™

October 6, 2019

BERWYN, PA - The Berwyn Fire Company is teaming up with the National Fire Protection Association® (NFPA®)—the official sponsor of Fire Prevention Week for more than 90 years—to promote this year’s Fire Prevention Week campaign, “Not Every Hero Wears a Cape. Plan and Practice Your Escape!” The campaign works to educate everyone about the small but important actions they can take to keep themselves and those around them safe.

NFPA statistics show that in 2017 U.S. fire departments responded to 357,000 home structure fires. These fires caused 2,630 fire deaths and 10,600 fire injuries. On average, seven people died in a fire in a home per day during 2012 to 2016. “These numbers show that home fires continue to pose a significant threat to safety,” said Lorraine Carli, NFPA’s vice president of Outreach and Advocacy. “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.

While NFPA and the Berwyn Fire Company are focusing on home fires, these messages apply to virtually any location. “Situational awareness is a skill people need to use wherever they go,” said Fire Chief Eamon Brazunas. “No matter where you are, look for available exits. If the alarm system sounds, take it seriously and exit the building immediately.”

The Berwyn Fire Company will be visiting schools, businesses and hosting fire stations tours in support of this year’s Fire Prevention Week campaign, “Not Every Hero Wears a Cape. Plan and Practice Your Escape!” While the official recognition of Fire Prevention Week runs from October 6-12, Berwyn first responders will spend the entire month of October spreading the fire safety message in the T-E community.

To find out more about Fire Prevention Week programs and activities or to schedule a fire safety visit, please contact Berwyn Fire Company Fire Prevention Coordinator Jack Zabinski by phone at 610-644-6040 or email at jack.zabinski@berwynfireco.org.
