Tip of The Month
When the alarm sounds... Get out!
Fire doubles in volume every 30-60 seconds. In just a couple of minutes, an entire room or multiple rooms can be engulfed in flames and smoke. When the fire alarm sounds, get out of the building - FAST and NEVER, no matter what, delay or go back inside the building to get your “things”. Ask yourself, is a cell phone or computer more important than your life? No way. You can always buy a new cell phone; but you can’t buy your life back.
