Escape Plans

Making Your Fire Escape Plan

  • Draw a floor plan or map of your home. Show all doors and windows.
  • Mark two ways out of each room.
  • Mark all of the smoke alarms with "SA." Smoke alarms should be on every level of your home. Make sure there is an alarm in or near every sleeping area. And remember to check the batteries each month and replace them when needed.
  • Pick a family meeting place outside where everyone can meet.
  • Remember, practice your plan at least twice a year.
