Most people don't know the difference a closed door makes in a fire. You can change that.

Introducing The "Close Before You Doze" Campaign

As a firefighter, you know that closing doors is a key tactic to isolate the flow of fire. Help share the benefit of that tactic with your community by encouraging families to close their doors as a preventative action against fire in their homes. The "Close Before You Doze" campaign aims to make closing bedroom doors at night just as important as knowing "Stop, Drop and Roll".
