Bryon has drawn up the following Fire Escape Plan for Your Home. Be Sure to Print it Out and Practice!
FIRE ESCAPE PLAN FOR THE HOME
The most important Fire Safety Item for a family is WORKING SMOKE DETECTORS. Smoke Detectors should be near all sleeping areas and at least 1 for each floor. The best smoke detectors are interconnected. That means when one detector is activated, the rest of the detectors will sound an alarm.
All families should have a Fire Escape Plan for their home. The objective of the drill is to practice the escape plan as if it was at night and all family members were in their bedrooms.
Draw the escape routes on a map of the home. You can use grid paper to make your own map.
The plan needs to be practiced.
Practice the plan crawling on your hands and knees.
The Smoke from a fire is what kills or injures the most people in a home fire situation.
The best air will be near the floor.
Always have 2 Exits from Bedrooms.
Bedroom Doors should be closed at night. This will help to limit the smoke from spreading in the home.
Make sure all windows and doors operate correctly. They can be used as secondary exits.
Second Floor bedrooms should have an escape window ladder. Using the escape window ladder will also need to be practiced.
Always feel a door before you open it. Use the back of your hand.
If it is hot, do not open-use the secondary exit.
Call the fire department from outside the building.
Have a safe meeting place for the family outside the home. This could be the mailbox or the neighbor's front stairs.
Make sure to take a head count. If someone is trapped inside- the fire department needs to be informed.
Make sure all family members know their address and what number to call for emergencies.
Once you get out of the Building STAY OUT.
Holiday Safety Tips:
WATER THAT TREE!
Within 3 seconds of ignition, a dry pine tree can be completely ablaze. (Click on the link above to view a demo.) Remember, a WET Tree is a SAFE Tree! Also, do not leave candles burning unattended and be sure to keep them out of the reach of children & pets.
