MySafe:LA and your Los Angeles Fire Department ask: Do you have two ways out?
It sounds simple, even silly – but it’s a question you must have an answer for.
In the event of a fire in your home, knowing two ways out of every room could save your life. And fires occur more often than you might think.
Did you know the Los Angeles Fire Department responds to an average of 10 fires a day? And on many days, up to eight of them involve homes and apartments. Don’t let a fire ruin your day. Knowing what to do will help you and your family stay safe.
