NFPA and the Collierville Fire Department offer these additional tips and recommendations for developing and practicing a home escape plan:

  • Draw a map of your home with all members of your household, marking two exits from each room and a path to the outside from each exit.

  • Practice your home fire drill twice a year. Conduct one at night and one during the day with everyone in your home, and practice using different ways out.

  • Teach children how to escape on their own in case you can’t help them.

  • Make sure the number of your home is clearly marked and easy for the fire department to find.

  • Close doors behind you as you leave — this may slow the spread of smoke, heat, and fire.

  • Once you get outside, stay outside. Never go back inside a burning building.
