Fires can be loud, burn very fast, and smoke can make a room very dark.
That's why good escape plans help you get out quickly.
Here's how to help your family with an escape plan:
  1. Try to find at least 2 ways out from every room in your home.
  2. Every way needs to be planned and practiced with grownups.
  3. Remember to stay low and go.
  4. Before opening a door in a fire, feel it first. If it's hot, there may be fire on the other side. Do not open the door. Try to get out another way.
  5. Pick an easy-to-remember, safe place outside to meet your family after you get out.
  6. Call 9-1-1 or the emergency number from a neighbor's place.
  7. Stay outside no matter what. Don't go back in for anything!
