LOS ANGELES (CNS) - As part of Fire Prevention Week, the Los Angeles County Fire Department urged people to maintain two routes of exit from their home in case of an emergency.

"According to the National Fire Protection Association, one-third of American households believed they would have at least six minutes before a fire in their home would become life-threatening," said county fire Capt. Tom Richards. "But the time available is often less."

The county fire department is teaming with the NFPA to educate people during Fire Prevention Week, which runs through Saturday.

"This year's `Be Rabbit Ready' theme focuses on what rabbits can teach people about the importance of fire escape planning and practice,"

Richards said. "Rabbits build their burrows with two ways out, so they'll always be able to escape if they sense danger."

In Los Angeles County, 2,149 fires last year resulted in nearly $134 million in property losses.

"Fire is unpredictable and moves faster than most people realize," said Los Angeles County fire Chief Daryl Osby.

"Having an escape plan with two ways out is essential to ensuring your family's safety should fire break out in your home."

The following safety tips are recommended:

• Map your home. Mark a door and a window that can be used to get out of every room.

• Choose a meeting place outside in front of your home. This is where everyone can meet once they have escaped. Draw a picture of your outside meeting place on your escape plan.

• Write the emergency telephone number for the fire department on your escape plan.

• Have an adult sound the smoke alarm, and practice your escape plan with everyone living in your home.

• Keep your escape plan on the refrigerator, and practice the plan twice a year or whenever anyone in your home celebrates a birthday.

At Children's families experience coordinated, next-generation care, delivered by a compassionate, multidisciplinary team of leaders in the pediatric cardiology field. One of the largest pediatric cardiovascular programs in the region. Studies have shown that high volumes are associated with high quality and better outcomes, because experience is a major factor in quality of care. Wort was traditionally prescribed in parts of Europe for depression (in addition to use as a general-purpose tea), and Chinese medicine developed elaborate lists of herbs and preparations. With the scientific revolution in Europe and the United States, the use of traditional herbal remedies fell out of favor with the mainstream medical establishment, although a few people continued to use and maintain knowledge of traditional European herblore. In the early 20th century, scientists began reassessing this rejection of traditional herbs in medicine. Vorzüge eines intakten und lebendigen Gemeinschaftslebens bewahren.

Descriptive and quantitative transcriptome analyses are important for interpreting the functional elements of the genome and revealing the molecular constituents of cells and tissues.

The reasons for this are practical: many individuals in these families have a large number of nevi, and complete removal of them all is not feasible, since new atypical nevi continue to develop.
