Fire Escape Plan
While smoke alarms alert people to fires, families still need to develop and practice home fire escape plans so that they can get out quickly.
- Draw a floor plan of your home, showing two ways out of each room, including windows.
- Practice the escape plan at least twice a year, making sure that everyone is involved - from kids to grandparents. If there are infants or family members with mobility limitations, make sure that someone is assigned to assist them.
- Agree on an outside meeting place where everyone can meet after they've escaped. Remember to get out first, then call for help. Never go back inside until the fire department gives the OK.
