Every residence or place of business is required to be numbered and to have its number attached to the front of the building. Building numbering is critically important in an emergency. It can save police, fire and ambulance personnel valuable time in responding to an emergency.
The Pelham Manor Fire Department reminds you to check for the nearest fire exit when entering a public building. You should be aware of fire exits when you visit a hotel, shopping centers, stores or a theater.
Exit Drills in the Home
The Pelham Manor Fire Department encourages you to practice exit drills in your home. Establish predetermined means of exit from your home in case of fire. Then, practice your escape routes by using exit drills.
