Editorial: Every family needs a plan in case of fire
The Lake Report's weekly editorial. File

If fire strikes your home, do you have a plan?

fire officials have always encouraged Canadians to create and practise an escape plan if a fire breaks out.

As Crossroads Public School principal Kate Fish reminds us all in a compelling story this week about her family’s experience, having working smoke detectors and a plan in case of a fire can be the difference in a life-or-death situation.

In her family’s case, when fire roared through their home 10 days before Christmas, their two daughters were able to escape because they knew exactly what to do.

It’s an excellent reminder for us all.
