Here’s some sound safety advice, courtesy of Lt. Joshua Erskine, Assistant Chief of the Brunswick Division of Fire and Rescue:
If you have never given consideration to the importance of closing the bedroom doors in your house when you go to bed, please reconsider. This video provides a great demonstration of why it is so important.
This is not the only proactive action that we should all be taking though as smoke detectors, carbon monoxide detectors and escape plans are also crucial pieces to the puzzle. We recommend that smoke detectors be outside every bedroom door and also in each bedroom. The time needed to exit has been drastically reduced making early notification essential.
The folks at the fire department are available to answer any questions you may have.
