Smoke and fire spread fast, so there's no time to figure out how to escape after a fire starts. Parents and their children should recognize the sound of the smoke alarm and immediately get out of the house and assemble at a pre-determined location, he said.

President Calvin Coolidge proclaimed the first National Fire Prevention Week on October 4-10, 1925, beginning a tradition of the president of the United States signing a proclamation recognizing the occasion.

Today the Crooksville Fire Department held an open house for the community to learn about fire safety.

She added that giving children responsibilities and challenging them with activities, such as drawing a map of the home or picking the meeting place, will make them feel better, as they are helping to ensure everyone is safe.

"One of the things we want them to do with their families, is when they go home, we give them a little bit of homework", says Capt. Thomson. It reinforces why everyone needs to have an escape plan.

"We've beat smoke detectors pretty well into people's heads, so if you don't have them, shame on you", he said. While it isn't clear whether those conditions contributed to the individuals' inability to escape or the spread of the fire, hoarding items can make it more complicated to plan escape routes, and also more hard for responding firefighters to get to you.

The Quincy Fire Department also wants to remind residents this month to check the batteries of smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. Conduct one at night and one during the day with everyone in your home, and practice using different exit paths.

Carmel Fire Department is having an open house this Wednesday from 5-8 p.m.
