Planning is the key to a fast and safe exit from a fire. Once your smoke alarm has been activated you may have less than 2 minutes to escape. Do it today, don't wait until a fire occurs.
Start by drawing a floor plan of your home, marking two ways out of each room; especially the sleeping areas. If you live in a two story house, you may want to invest in a fire safety ladder, available at most hardware stores.
Remember to set up a meeting place outside your home for everyone to report to after they have gotten out (a tree, basketball goal, the mailbox, etc.)
