Do you know what to do if a fire occurs in your home? Now is the time to sit down with your family and prepare a family fire escape plan.

Here are a few things to consider when preparing your plan:

  • Include all family members in the development of your escape plan.
  • Determine two ways out of every room in your home.
  • Feel all doors before opening. If the door feels normal, open it with caution.
  • Crawl low if you encounter smoke or heat conditions.
  • Have a specified meeting place outside of your home for all family members.
  • Call 911 from a neighbour’s house or other safe area.
  • Do not go back into your home for any reason. Once you are out, stay out!
  • Ensure that your house or business number is clearly visible from the street.
