Seven lives are lost to home fires every day in the US – more than all natural disasters combined. In an effort to change these statistics, the American Red Cross is launching “The Great Escape,” a PSA aimed at educating families on home fire safety.

This campaign focuses on preparing families with two simple steps: Practicing a 2-minute fire drill, and Testing smoke alarms monthly.

To bring this message to life, the work features a surreal universe where toys have come alive and are practicing a timely evacuation from their dollhouse—a scene which we later realize is a figment of one child’s imagination.
