Home Escape Plans

To develop a home escape plan:

  • Sit down with your family and plan two ways out of every room, especially bedrooms. Make special arrangements for children, older adults and people with disabilities.
  • Have a meeting place already planned and mark it on your plan.
  • Check your smoke detectors on the first day of every month. Replace your smoke detector batteries once a year.
  • Practice the escape plan twice a year, utilizing a plan to find two ways out of every room.

In case of fire:

  • Check doors for heat and smoke before using. Feel the door with the back of your hand. If it is hot, go to the second way out.
  • Crawl low under smoke. Get on your hands and knees and crawl quickly to the exit.
  • Get out fast. And stay out! Go to the meeting place. Do not go back in for any reason. Call 911 from a neighbor’s house.

Fire is the third leading cause of accidental death in the home.
