"The number one killer is not normally the fire, it's the smoke. You've got to have the smoke detector. The thing this year, nationwide for fire prevention week is every second counts. Know two ways out. What we're talking about it knowing two ways out of your home, so that if the front door is blocked by the fire, you know to go out the back door, side door or window."
Amber Rodriguez and her five year old son, Caleb went through the fire safety course. She is glad he's now aware of what to do and how to save himself if there's ever a fire.
"Extremely important. A lot of kids end up not learning these things and I've seen people have tragic accidents happen with not having any knowledge."
The Fire Marshall says if you don't have a smoke detector already in your home, to get one. And if you have any questions, you can stop by any of the Lawton Fire Stations.
