FIRE ESCAPE PLAN
Fires can be very scary, especially for kids. Planning an escape plan for your home can make all the difference in your family evacuating safely in the event of a fire. Here are some helpful tips on developing an escape plan:
HELP YOUR FAMILY MAKE AN ESCAPE PLAN
*Try to find two ways out from every room in your home. The first way out should be a door. Every way needs to be planned and practiced with grown-ups.
*Before opening any door in a fire, feel the door first at the bottom and then work your hand up the door to see if it is hot. A hot door means there may be fire on the other side. Try to get out another way.
*Stay low to the floor when escaping a fire.
*If you have security bars in your home, make sure you know how to open them in case you need to escape from a fire.
*Pick a safe and easy-to-remember place outside the home to meet your family after you get out.
*After you get out, call 9-1-1 or the fire department.
