The city of Parkersburg will observe National Fire Prevention Week Oct. 8-14.
This year's theme is Every Second Counts: Plan Two Ways Out, and will encourage people to not only have their escape routes planned in the event of a fire, but to practice those routes twice a year.
"If you have a fire at home you may only have less than three minutes after the alarm sounds to get out safely".
"Developing and practicing a home escape plan is like building muscle memory", said Casey Bryson, Fire Chief of the Atascadero Fire & Emergency Services.
