Does your family know how to get out quickly in the event of a fire in your home? Just like fire drills at school, practicing how to get out quickly will make things a little less scary if there is ever a fire in your home. Create and practice your home escape plan. Here’s how:

  • Download our escape plan worksheet and draw a simple floor plan of your house.
  • Label two ways out of every room – especially sleeping areas.
  • Decide on a family meeting place in a safe area outside.
  • Go over the plan with every member of your family.
  • Check the smoke alarms in your house by pressing the TEST button on each alarm.
  • Practice the plan with your family.
