Create a Home Fire Escape Plan

A home fire can spread rapidly and may leave you with as little as two minutes to escape to safety. One of the first safety precautions we recommend is to establish a Home Fire Escape Plan.

Make sure you walk through your home and inspect all possible exits and escape routes. If you have children in your home, draw a floor plan of your home and mark at least two ways out of each room, including windows and doors.

The next step is to
practice your escape plan at least twice a year. Train all household members to know two ways to escape from every room of your home and know the family meeting spot outside of your home.

Lastly, we recommend
install the right smoke detector. Teach children and family members what smoke alarms sound like and what to do when they hear it. The most common smoke detectors have an alarming rate of failure. Some can take as much as 30 minutes to activate. Most smoke alarms found in the market are ionization smoke alarms. This type of alarm uses a small amount of radioactive material to ionize air in an internal sensing chamber. When smoke enters the chamber, the conductivity of the chamber air will decrease to a predetermined level, the alarm is set off. However, the ions can still flow through despite the particles in a real fire, such as black smoke, entering the chamber. These smoke alarms also have an expiration date so just because you change batteries regularly, the ions could have already expired.

Hero Fire Protection recommends using a photoelectric smoke alarm such as the OmniShield state-of-the-art smoke sensor because it will go off when black smoke is detected. Designed and engineered in the United States, OmniShield incorporates Texas Instruments micro-processors and RF modules to give your home a private network of wireless sensors, so if there is danger in one room, you are alerted in every room of the home.
