Fire Escape Plans

8/6/2018

With the beginning of spring time and school finishing up right now is the perfect time for your family to plan and practice an escape route.

 

If a fire breaks out in your home, you may only have a few minutes to get out safely once the smoke alarm sounds.

 

Each person in your family needs to know the plan. Here are a few tips for helping your family be prepared with an escape plan.

 

Safety tips

 

  • Draw a map of your home showing all doors and windows. Discuss the plan with everyone in your home.
  • Know at least two ways out of every room. Make sure all doors and windows leading outside open easily.
  • Have an outside meeting place a safe distance from the home where everyone should meet.
  • Practice you home fire drill at night and during the day with everyone in your home twice a year.
  • Practice using different ways out.
  • Teach children how to escape on their own in case you cannot help them.
  • Close doors behind you as you leave.

 

If the alarm sounds.

 

  • If smoke alarm sounds get out and stay out, don't go back for people or pets.
  • If you have to escape through smoke get low and go under smoke to your way out.
  • Call the fire department from outside your home.
