Fire Safety Plan. Practice with your Family.
We all know that fires move fast and that our first instinct when we see a fire is to evacuate as quickly as we can, but what we forget to do is come up with an effective fire escape plan with our families.
Every second counts during a fire, and it is important that you and your family are on the same page on what to do if this disaster strikes your home.
With your family walk through all the rooms in your home and come up with 2 exit strategies on how you would vacate the room in case of a fire.
While you are doing your walk through make sure that all windows are accessible and unstuck for quick opening.
Walk around the room in the dark to practice trying to find the doors and potential obstacles in case of a fire occurring in the middle of the night.
Talk to your children on the importance of not being afraid of fire fighters.
Having an effective plan can be life or death for your family.
