Plan a safe Escape

Fitting smoke alarms is the first crucial step to protecting yourself from fire. But what would you do if one went off during the night?

Be prepared by making a plan of escape

  • Plan an escape route and make sure everybody knows how to escape.
  • Make sure exits are kept clear.
  • The best route is the normal way in and out of your home.
  • Think of a second route in case the first one is blocked.
  • Take a few minutes to practise your escape plan.
  • Review your plan if the layout of your home changes.
  • Keep door and window keys where everyone can find them.
