   LCFR would like to remind everyone that fire moves fast . You may only have three minutes or less to escape once a fire starts in your home . A few simple acts can save your life in the event of a home fire: 
   Have working smoke alarms . Remember that smoke alarms are your first defense against home fires , protecting you and your family 24 hours a day .  
   Have and practice a home escape plan to ensure everyone knows two ways out of the home .  
   Have a pre - designated meeting place to allow everyone to know who made it out safely .  
   Close the doors in your home . Closed doors slow the spread of fire .
