Association of Black Professional Fire Fighters (IABPFF) is launching the
Climbing for Life fire safety campaign. The
campaign promotes the awareness and safe use of home fire escape ladders,
smoke alarms and home escape planning. Young children, under the age of
14, are often afraid to descend a ladder as most children have a fear of
heights. A fire in the home becomes a stressful situation and a child may
become almost paralyzed with fear and refuse to descend the ladder. Climbing for
the regular practice of home escape plans; installation of residential
smoke alarms, and safe climbing of appropriate home escape ladders. For
more information on this campaign, see the Press Release below.
