A Fire Safety Video for Parents and Adults

This 20-minute video demonstrates how to escape a burning home. It is intended to educate parents and adult on fire safety. The video discusses the importance of having a fire safety plan, smoke detectors, a fire extinguisher, a fire escape ladder and encourages practicing your plan with your family. The video follows one family as they practice their fire safety plan. Then it shows the various scenarios for the family escaping the home (via the stairs, down the fire escape ladder, onto the porch roof, out the window). It also discusses the importance of closing bedroom doors at night.

This video is dedicated to all the people that have perished in home fires. The demonstrated procedures in this video are to date the most successful means of surviving a fire with little or no injury. It is our hope that by learning and practicing the procedures in this video not a single life will be lost in future home fires. This video was not meant to answer every question or solve every situation that may arise in a home fire. We cannot guarantee anything in a home fire because in a fire, there are no guarantees.

Funding for this video was made possible through a grant from the Community Health Foundation in Massillon. SAFE KIDS would like to thank the foundation for their support and dedication to the children of Stark County.

The idea for the video was a collaborative effort of Stark County SAFE KIDS Coalition and the Stark County Child Fatality Review Board. The fire safety committee wrote the script and it was produced by Image Video.

The video will be used to teach fire safety through community programs and personal use. It can be used in many settings throughout the county, state and nation. It is not specific to Stark County.

If you'd like to purchase a copy of the video or if you'd like a speaker, please contact Troy Slabaugh at Plain Township Fire and Rescue at 330-492-4089.
