Fire Prevention Week: How To Make A Home Fire Escape Plan
Fire Prevention Week is a great time to gather as a household to create and practice an escape plan.
Remember, Every second counts: Plan two ways out!
Download this Home Escape Plan worksheet and follow these steps:
1. Draw a map of your home. Show all doors and windows.
2. Visit each room. Find two ways out.
3. All windows and doors should open easily. You should be able to use them to get outside.
4. Make sure your home has smoke alarms. Push the test button to make sure each alarm is working.
