Home Escape Plans are important for every family to have and practice.
Draw a map of your home showing two ways out of each room.
Have an outside meeting place. A tree, mailbox or light pole, that is a safe distance away from your house, are all good meeting places.
Practice your home escape plan at night and during the day at least twice a year.
Have children practice both ways out on their own in case an adult is unable to help them.
Close doors behind you when you leave.
When you hear the alarm Get Low and Go. You want to remember to stay low under the smoke.
Make sure your house or building number can be seen from the street.
Call 911 from outside your home.
Get out and Stay out! Never go back inside your house for anything.
Remember to test your Smoke Alarms once a month!
