Do you have a emergency fire plan for your home?
We are all busy with kids, school, work, after school activities, but we all need to take some time out of our busy schedule, and make a family fire plan. I know as a parent it hard to juggle family life, but safety for my family is always on my mind. Here is what you can do.
- Make a map of your home, and make a fire exit plan. Post you fire plan in the kitchen area a daily reminder.
- Teach safety techniques like step by step how to instructions to stay low to the ground, and cover your face with your shirt or a pillow case to protect from the smoke
- Conduct drills like listening for the smoke detector, and practicing the fire exit plan for evacuation.
- Talk about fire safety with your children. Play games to teach them stop drop and roll, and to be ready for if a fire if it happened in your home.
