Tips for Making a Fire Escape Plan

If any misfortunate incident happens in your house or surrounding areas like fire, earthquake, flood or any other mishap, you become completely frozen, your mind stops working and unable to process the situation to tackle it.

To prevent this, you should have an escape plan so that you and your family members know exactly the exit routes and how to escape. Once you are out of the house this will help the firefighters to put the house out of fire quickly rather than rescuing the victims, as their main priority will be now saving the house from fire.

Alarm Sounds

Place alarm sounds around your house, and make sure after every few months that the system is actively properly working or not. Brief every member of your family including children, & elders about the whole system, how it works including alarms and fire extinguishers, and when to call firefighters.

During smoke children do not process the sounds of alarm, they might be confused with the sound of an ambulance or police patrol outside the house, for the elder who are at home must remain active.

Exiting Routes

Have a look at each room of your house and find two ways to escape out, including windows and doors. Ground floor rooms or kitchen windows would be more helpful as it is easy to jump on the other side. Make sure all escape routes open easily and easily reachable so that one can escape outside.

Include Children and Old in the Plan:

While making a Fire escape plan it's so Important to include everyone in the plan whether children or old, because these two spend most of the time at home and are most likely to be subject to Fire. If both of them know the exit routes, and about the fire alarms it will be easy for them to follow the plan previously made to escape out.

Engaging Point

While making the plan choose an engaging point close to the home, like backyard, garden, neighbor’s house or any other place that is near from home.

Have Plan B or a Backup Plan

If the exit routes are blocked try to escape from other routes, like for instant Washroom windows or any other alternate routes which can lead you outside from home.

If you are caught in a room, put everything to make a wall between you and fire, try to place something that fire cannot catch easily, reach to your phone or landline and call the fire department to rescue you.

If that is not possible, scream from windows or raise a flag as an indicator so that your neighbors or outsiders can come to rescue you or call firefighters.

Share your Fire Escape Plan with everyone

You must inform everyone about your fire escape plan including guests, visitors and even neighbors. If your neighbor is fully aware of the entering and exit routes in the plan he or she might come to rescue and help in escaping out.

Make Necessary Arrangements

After developing the plan, the next step is to make arrangements of it, Place Fire alarms in Kitchen, Hall or any other place at Home where the chances of eruption of fire is high, Place fire extinguishers on every floor of the house.

Make exit routes more reachable and make special arrangements for disable. Make sure after a few months that the system is working properly or not.

Put your Plan into Action

Execute fire escape plan twice a year for practice, making the drill as realistic as possible.
