Did you know that today, if your home broke out in fire, you would have less than three minutes to escape safely?

By Chief James M. Dodge III
February 21, 2020

Forty years ago, a person had about 17 minutes to escape a burning home. Evolutions in furnishings, homes incorporating more open layouts, and lightweight construction materials, allow fires to spread much quicker.

But luckily, the simple action of closing your bedroom door before going to sleep can help slow the spread of smoke, heat, and fire.

UL’s Fire Safety Research Institute launched the “Close Your Door” fire PSA (public service announcement) to get this important fire safety tip out to as many families as possible.

Join our cause by taking the pledge (see link), and spread the word about the importance of closing your door!
