Being able to get out of your home and save your family depends on advanced warning from smoke alarms and having a good plan.
Our job as parents or guardians is to always protect our loved ones. One way we do this is to prepare for possible disasters. Having a fire escape plan can be a life saver.
Read the list below and download our helpful flyer here.
– Make arrangements in your plan for anyone in your home who has a disability.
– Allow children to master fire escape planning and practice before holding a fire drill at night
when they are sleeping. The objective is to practice, not to frighten, so telling children there
will be a drill before they go to bed can be as effective as a surprise drill.
Having a fire escape plan is how we can prepare ourselves and our loved ones in the event of a possible disaster. No one ever knows their house is going to catch fire and understanding how to keep your family and loved ones safe is a priority we want to help you plan for! Print out this 5 step fire plan to help start the conversation with your family.
