It is important to review this with your family so that in the event of a fire everyone will know how to get out! Remember to plan several ways out of your home in case your usual route becomes blocked for some reason. The time to plan a safe escape is before a fire strikes.Once you are outside it is important that you have a common meeting place, a tree, mailbox or even the neighbors house. As long as everyone in the family knows to meet there. If someone does not show up, inform the first arriving fire units so they can go in for a rescue.

Once you are safely out of the house, do not go back in. Not for pets, valuables or anything your life is worth much more than any possessions you might have. Many pet owners have died going back in to rescue the family pet. Spot and fluffy are smart animals and will often find their own way out.
