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.
