Practice Makes Perfect

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.

  • Practice.
  • Plan.
  • Repeat.

Escape Planning Checklist

  • Make a home escape plan. Draw a map of your home showing all
    doors and windows. Discuss the plan with everyone in your home.
  • Know at least two ways out of every room
  • Have an outside meeting place (like a tree, light pole or mailbox)
    a safe distance from the home where everyone should meet
  • Practice your home fire drill at night and during the day with
    everyone in your home at least twice a year
  • Teach your children how to escape on their own in case you can't help them
  • Close doors behind you as you leave

If the Alarm Sounds

If the smoke alarm sounds, follow
your family’s escape plan to get out
and stay out. Never go back
inside for people or pets.

If you have to escape in a fire
emergency, get low and crawl
under the smoke to the exit.

Call the 911 from
outside your home.
