Emergency Escape Route Planning

In the event of a home safety emergency, every second counts. That's why it's important to plan and practice escape routes with the entire family. Identify multiple exits out of each room in the home and set a dedicated meeting spot outside. Everyone in the house should also know the location of all smoke and carbon monoxide alarms.

For households with children, it is a good idea to draw a map of your home and plot multiple exits out of every room. Download our home escape planning grid below to practice.
