“Edith” video offers fire safety tips

Posted by wlpo on February 14, 2016

You may know someone named “Edith”….but, do you know the “Edith” that saves families in time of fire? Streator Fire Department’s video, hosted by spokesperson and Firefighter Bryan Park explains “Edith” or “exit drills in the home”.

Have a working smoke detector. Park says assemble the family and map 2 ways out of the house and each room. Arrange a special meeting place in an emergency. Activate your smoke alarm, so you recognize it and then practice your escape plan, perhaps 2 times a year.

The video is on the Streator Fire Department and Streator Fire Fighters Local 56 Facebook pages.
