According to the NFPA, often times most injuries from household fires are very preventable; but there are not proper fire escape plans in place for household members to follow.

Today, most school systems will participate in practiced fire drills at least once a quarter with their students. The practice of fire drills has been a part of the education system for many years, but something that we forget as we move beyond our grammar school years, but last year alone 3,645 people died due to a fire. This should be an alarming number- particularly for something that is preventable with proper planning.

Depending upon who you ask, there are several keys to remember in creating such a plan; however, we have compiled the list of the must haves.

  1. Map out your home.
  2. Clearly determine two ways out of each room.
  3. Test all smoke alarms for proper functionality.
  4. Create an meeting place for you and your children away from the structure.
  5. Memorize the phone number to the local fire department.
  6. Continually practice your plan.

By creating this plan, you could prevent disaster within your home!
