  • Make a Fire Escape Plan

    More than 15,925 people were injured by fire in the United States in 2013, according to the U.S. Fire Administration. If a fire breaks out in your home, you may have as little as two minutes to safely escape once the alarm sounds.

    When fire strikes, deadly smoke can fill your home within minutes. That's why we want you to plan and practice home fire drills. Watch this 30 second video for life-saving tips on how to make a home fire escape plan.

    safety_tips_escape_plan.Planning can help protect you, your family, and your home when seconds count. Here are a few steps to help keep your family fire safe:

    • Check that all smoke alarms are working properly;
    • Make a map of your home and mark all windows and doors through which you may escape;
    • Choose a meeting place outside the home where firefighters can see you and your family;
    • Write the emergency telephone number for your fire department on your escape plan;
    • Practice your fire escape drill; and
    • Keep your fire escape plan in a common area where everyone can see it, i.e. refrigerator.
