most in homes that lack working smoke alarms.

Create A Fire Escape Plan

  • You should know of 2 exits out of every room, that can include doors and windows.

  • Practice home fire drills, you should be able to get out in 2 minutes or less!

  • Pick a meeting spot, that way you know who has made it out of the house safely.

  • Make sure you stay low and go, you want to protect yourself from the smoke.

  • Once you get outside, call 911!
