Then sit down with your family and draw a map of your home showing the doors and windows in each room. Remember, every room should have at least two emergency exits. When mapping out your family's emergency plan, be sure to also include an outside meeting spot like a tree, light pole or mailbox that is a safe distance away from the house.
