Awareness Days

Home Fire Drill Day

Saturday, October 13th 2018

October 13th marks the 3rd annual Home Fire Drill Day, brought to you by Make Safe Happen. Parents do fire drills at work, and children do them at school, but half of parents say their kids wouldn’t know what to do if their home fire alarm went off. With your help, we’re looking to change that by dedicating this day to encourage families to create and practice their home fire drill.

Take this day to learn how to pick a safe spot, test your smoke alarms and do a family fire drill, and download our app for home fire safety tips, tools and resources.
