Fire Won’t Wait. Plan Your Escape.

You practice fire drills at school and at work. Why not practice them at home too? National Fire Prevention Week (Oct 9–15) is a good time to create and practice an escape plan with your family or roommates.

The National Fire Prevention Association (NFPA) makes creating an escape plan easy, with five simple steps.

  1. Draw a map of your home, marking all doors and windows. Make sure there is nothing blocking any windows or doors in each room.
  2. Test your smoke alarms to make sure they’re working. Batteries should be changed at least once a year, and the smoke alarms themselves should be replaced every 10 years.
  3. Find a safe meeting place outside your home. Choose a tree, mailbox, or something else that doesn’t usually move.
  4. Inform every occupant in your home about your newly created plan.
  5. Finally, practice a fire drill twice a year so each occupant learns and memorizes the escape plan.

More information on fire escape plans and other fire safety tips can be found on the NFPA website.
