Escape Plan

Escape plan sampleWhen making your home escape plan remember:

  • You and your family should know two ways out of every room in your home-especially the sleeping areas.
  • Decide who is responsible for helping very young children or older adults get out of your home.
  • Your meeting place should be outside of your home, away from your home, in front and if possible. Make sure it is something that doesn't move-a porch, a tree, the community mailbox.
  • Send someone to a neighbor's home to call 911 as soon as possible.
  • You should practice your escape plan with your family at least two times a year.

Get started making your plan with a home safety checklist and home escape plan grid.
