Does Your Family Know Your Fire Escape Plan?


The Orange Park Firefighters remind you that in the event of a fire, remember that every second counts, so you and your family must always be prepared. Escape plans help you get out of your home quickly. In less than 30 seconds, a small flame can get completely out of control and turn into a major fire. It only takes minutes for a house to fill with thick black smoke and become engulfed in flames.

Prepare and practice your fire escape plan twice a year with everyone in your household, including children and people with disabilities.

If you do not have a fire escape plan for your family, contact the Orange Park Fire Department and we will assist you with developing a plan.
