It is critically important that each member of your family knows what to do in the event of an emergency, such as a fire, in your home. That is why The American Red Cross suggests the following tips to help ensure everyone in your household is prepared:
Hold a family meeting to discuss and develop a home evacuation plan.
Walk through your home and look for all possible escape routes
including both doors and windows.
Determine two ways to get out of each room in case fire blocks one
of the exit paths.
Choose a place to meet outside in the event of a fire, and be sure it’s
a safe distance from your home.
Practice your evacuation plan at least twice a year.
Be sure there are smoke detectors on every level of your home, both inside and outside sleeping areas. Test your smoke alarms monthly, replace the batteries at least once a year and replace the detectors every 10 years.
