Think the flame is worse then the heat, think again!

If your like most people you might think you can get out of a fire if you can at least avoid the flames.

Not true, the smoke and gases are 3 times as likely to kill you then the flame. https://www.usfa.fema.gov/

It takes less than 30 seconds for a small fire to go to a big on in many cases. Just minutes for the black smoke and gasses that are produced to over come you. Did you know the heat from a fire can be more threatening than the flame. The temperature on the floor can be 100 degrees and 600 degrees at eye level. Can you image what that kind of heat does to your lungs while breathing it in? The heat alone can even burn your clothing. 

Make sure you have your fire plan in place. There are many resources to get an exit plan set up in case of a fire. 

This site is a great resource for information.https://www.usfa.fema.gov/

Be safe and be prepared.
