Fire Escape Planning Tips:

Create a Home Escape Plan: Draw a map of your home, marking all doors and windows. Discuss the escape plan with everyone in your household.

Identify Two Ways Out: Know at least two ways out of every room, ensuring all doors and windows leading outside open easily.

Designate a Meeting Place: Establish a designated meeting place a safe distance from the house (e.g., tree, mailbox, light pole) where everyone should gather after evacuating.

Practice Regularly: Conduct home fire drills at night and during the day, practicing at least twice a year with all members of your household. Practice using different exit routes to enhance preparedness.

Teach Children to Escape: Educate children on how to escape on their own in case assistance is not immediately available.

Close Doors During Evacuation: Close doors behind you as you leave to help slow the spread of fire and smoke.
