Fire Safety - Have An Escape Plan

Be Prepared

Contrary to popular belief, the smell of smoke will not awaken you. As a matter of fact, the poisonous gases actually put you into a deeper sleep. Since the majority of fatal fires happen at night, it is essential to have working smoke detectors throughout your home to awaken you in a fire emergency.

For the best protection, make sure you have at least one smoke detector on each level of your home and in or near all sleeping areas. Test the alarms each month and replace batteries once a year. Smoke detectors that are a part of a monitored alarm system will automatically send a signal to have the fire department summoned.

Get Out Immediately!

When fire strikes your home, authorities say you may have as little as one to two minutes to escape. It is imperative that you have a well rehearsed Escape Plan which includes all members of your family that are old enough to understand, and provides for those that are not able to escape on their own.

Study and practice an Escape Plan – it could save your life and the lives of those you love. When dealing with a fire, there is no time to gather personal belongings. The time you take trying could mean the difference between life and death. So always follow the golden rule of survival in the event of a fire, and GET OUT IMMEDIATELY!

Do not call the fire department while you are still in your home. Gather children and any disabled family members that are in your home and GET OUT. Call the fire department after you and your family are safe. Do NOT try to fight the fire. Let the firefighters do their job. Your only goal should be to get everyone out of danger.

Unfortunately, escaping a fire is rarely easy. Because of the unpredictable nature of fire, and the manner in which it spreads, it is difficult to know where and when it will strike. For this reason, it is important to establish procedures in advance for a successful escape.
