How to Make Your Fire Safety Plan
Fire Safety- When it comes to escaping the damage
Have you ever thought about what would happen if you were awoken in the middle of the night by a fire in your home? We know that safety is your number one priority if there is a fire in your home. We have gathered some tips on how to combat a fire to get out to safety.
1. Scope Out Your Home
Scoping out your home before a home fire may be a life-saving decision. Fire incites panic, and that can lead to poor decision-making in an emergency. You want to make sure you can get out safely of any room you are in when an emergency strikes.
2. Move Any Obstacles
When planning your route, make sure that there is nothing in your way, and never will be. You can ensure the integrity of your escape plans by keeping dressers and tables away from windows and pathways.
3. Practice Your Escape Route
Once escape routes are planned and pathways cleared, practice escaping. Many fire departments and municipalities encourage families to practice these routes monthly. You want to make sure your family is well practiced and versed in this route. You do not want to plan it, and everyone panic if the real thing ever happens.
4. Seek Out Professional Guidance
Local fire departments or even government offices can offer help in planning a good escape and an emergency plan during a fire emergency, or any emergency for that matter. You want to make sure depending on the size and structure of your home that you and your family can still safely escape during an emergency.
