Fire Evacuation Plan For Families
Fire Evacuation Plan for Families
When it occurs, a home fire can spread rapidly, leaving you with as little as one or two minutes to escape safely. One of the most important fire prevention tips to have is to create a fire evacuation plan for your family. Here are a few tips on how to maximize your fire evacuation plan.
Practice at least twice a year- Prepare a fire escape plan for your family and make sure everyone is familiar with it. Make sure you practice your home escape plan at least twice a year. Train everyone in your home to know two ways to escape from every room and have a family meeting spot outside of your home.
9-1-1- Make sure every family member, even children knows how to call 9-1-1 when a home fire occurs.
Meet outside your home or building - If you can’t meet inside your home or apartment, meeting somewhere close by is a good first option - if it’s safe to do so. Pick a spot that’s very specific that everyone can remember and find easily such as a tree, a telephone pole, or mailbox.
Involve your guests – If you have guests or visitors coming for a sleepover, be sure to share with them about your family's fire escape plan.
Be fully prepared for a real fire - When a smoke alarm sounds, get out immediately!
Install the right smoke detector – To supplement your fire escape plan, it is important to have the right smoke detector in your home. The most common smoke detectors have an alarming rate of failure and can take as much as 30 minutes to activate.
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.
