Tips for Home Escape

• Have working smoke alarms in each bedroom. You also need one outside each sleeping area.     Install alarms on every level of the home. Mount alarms in the basement.
• Test all smoke alarms once a month. Press the test button to be sure the alarms are working.
• Draw a map of your home. Show all doors and windows. Find at least two ways out of every         room.
• Choose an outside meeting place. It should be a safe distance from the home. It should be           visible from the street.
• Talk about the plan with everyone in your home. Have a fire drill in your home twice a year.
• Make sure all exits can be opened easily from the inside. This includes barred doors and             windows.
• Choose security bars that have quick-release devices. Make sure everyone in the home can       open them.

Events like the recent flooding in Louisiana, Hurricane Hermine approaching Florida, and Hurricane Lester in the Pacific remind us that weather can change at a moment’s notice.


And then don't forget to join in the fun!
