Have a Plan 

You may not be able to prevent a fire. The other important part of fire safety is planning in case a fire occurs in your home. 

  • Plan an escape route ahead of an emergency. Ensure every family member knows the plan and where to meet once you are outside. Establish an easy-to-identify location. Practice periodically. 
  • Be sure everyone in the family is familiar with stop, drop, and roll. 
  • Teach young children not to hide from fire or smoke.  
  • Everyone in the family must understand that they are never to return to a burning building. 
  • Contact emergency responders from a neighbor’s home.
