Fire Escape Planning
Plan Ahead! If a fire should break out in your home, you only have a few minutes to get out safely before the smoke alarm sounds.
Remember that items blocking doors and windows could keep you from escaping quickly and could mean the difference between life and death.
A key to your fire escape plan and keeping your family safe is practicing a home fire escape plan at least twice a year. You should identify two escape routes out of each room, if possible, and then make sure that each of those escape routes can be used safely by everyone.
Remember to always choose the escape route that is the safest- the one with the least amount of smoke and heat. Everyone in the family should practice getting low and going under the smoke to your designated exit.
The NFPA has a Basic Fire Escape Plan with ways to put your plan to test and other hot topics.
