Fire- Fire escape Plans are a MUST!

When a fire occurs your ability to get out is significantly greater with advanced warning from smoke alarms and with a fire escape plan in place. Seven, 7, people die everyday from a home fire and the thought of that is scary in itself.

Fire is so unpredictable and can spread so rapidly that you are often left with, on average, 2 minutes to exit safely. Having an escape plan and practicing with your family could be a lifesaver! Design an escape plan for each room in the home and discuss regularly. Have fire drills at home to make sure that everyone is aware and remembers how to respond and where they should be going.

Children in the home should have visual aids and have at least two exit plans. There should be a meeting point for the entire family in a safe place away from the home.

Placing a working flashlight in each room is a great way for anyone who would be trapped to signal to firefighter in an emergency. This will allow the firefighters to locate them in a timely manner even through the smoke.
