Firefighter Attends High School Graduation Of A Baby He Saved 17 Years Ago
Jun 18, 2015
Most people never anticipate a devastating fire to occur in their homes, but just like with anything else, it's crucial to be prepared. Working smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors are the first barrier between your family and tragedy. Small fire extinguishers can also help stop a fire before it gets out of control.
If a fire does break out, make sure to have an escape plan that every family member knows and practices. Teach children about "stop, drop and roll," in case their clothes catch fire, and to stay low to the ground if there's smoke.
To think, 20 seconds was the difference between life and death for this young girl. Now, 17 years later, both she and her hero can celebrate one of the most important milestones in life.
