BAYPORT, Minn., Oct. 8, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- October 7-13 is National Fire Prevention Week and Andersen Windows is encouraging homeowners to familiarize themselves with ways to prevent and prepare for home fires. As part of its LookOut For Kids® window safety program, Andersen offers materials and tips to help educate homeowners and caregivers on window safety and home-related accidents.
"People tend to feel safest in their home, however, it is also the place that poses the greatest risk to fire, with four out of five U.S. fire deaths occurring at home, according to the National Fire Protection Association," said Annie Zipfel, senior vice president and chief marketing officer, Andersen Corporation. "Through the LookOut For Kids window program, Andersen reminds parents and caregivers about steps they can take to prepare for the potential of a fire in their home."

Andersen and the LookOut For Kids program support the National Fire Protection Association's campaign, "Look. Listen. Learn. Be aware. Fire can happen anywhere™," which works to educate the public about basic but essential ways to quickly and safely escape a home fire.
