DEVELOP A FIRE ESCAPE PLAN Can Your Family Survive a Fire In Your Home?
Protect your family by planning and practicing a home fire escape plan. Always know two ways out from the house and agree on a meeting place outside of your home so you will know that everyone is out safely and accounted for.
MAKE SURE YOUR SMOKE DETECTORS AND CARBON MONOXIDE ALARMS ARE WORKING
Twice a year, when you adjust your clocks for daylight savings time:
Change your smoke detector batteries
Change your carbon monoxide detector batteries
Practice your home fire escape plan
IF THERE IS A FIRE
Do not try to fight the fire yourself
Get out of the house and stay out. Do not try and gather any personal possessions
CLOSE THE DOOR ON THE WAY OUT
If smoke is present, exit as low as possible and keep your mouth covered
CALL 911 ONCE YOU REACH A SAFE LOCATION
REMEMBER- WORKING SMOKE DETECTORS AND CARBON MONOXIDE DETECTORS SAVE LIVES
