Escape a House Fire (Part 1): Have a Plan

6/18/2019 (Permalink)

You don't have much time to escape a burning house, so be sure you have a plan in place—it could be the difference between life and death.

If a fire breaks out in your home, you have to get out fast! Worse, you may be plunged into darkness, have trouble breathing and need to keep yourself and family members calm. That’s why you should create and practice an escape plan before a fire starts.

  • Have a plan for young children who cannot get outside by themselves. Know who will help each child get out safely.
  • Teach children to never hide from firefighters and never go back inside a burning building.
  • Teach everyone to touch the back of a hand to check doors for heat before opening and, if the door is hot, to use a different way out. If using an escape ladder, everyone must know where it’s stored and how to use it.
  • Remember, if there is smoke, you need to get low and stay below the smoke.
  • Learn two ways out of every room in your home, in case one exit is blocked or dangerous to use.
  • Choose a meeting place a safe distance from your home. Once you’re out, stay out!
