Most people have a false understanding of what fire really is, thinking that it reacts as television shows depict. This misconception can be deadly. Fire is dark, hot, fast, and deadly! Make sure your family is safe from fire by creating and practicing a home escape plan.
The first step in having a home escape plan is to make sure everyone in your family sits down and has input into the home escape plan which should be a drawing of your home with all major features (bedrooms, stairs, hallways, doors, and windows).
Have a meeting place outside shown on the map. Also, have your normal exit path in one color with your secondary exit in a different color.
