Tips for Fire Escape Planning
You must always remember that your probability to get out depends on the warning from smoke alarms and the patency of escape routes. The following tips are handy for emergency escape.
- Create a home escape plan and present it to all family members. Preparation can prevent panic. For companies, create an emergency action plan for all employees.
- Practice a home fire escape plan, and more practice will help people respond more quickly.
- If you live in a dorm, make sure that you're familiar with the building's escape plan and participate in fire escape drills. Make the drill as realistic as possible.
- Some studies have shown that children may not awaken at the sound of the smoke alarm. Assign people to wake them up during emergencies.
- Try to let all members involved in the design of the fire escapes plan. Walkthrough your house, inspect all possible exits and escape routes, and clear obstacles on the escape routes.
- Mark two ways out of each room, including windows and doors. Also, make every smoke alarm visible.
- Everyone in the house must understand the escape plan. When you walk through your plan, check the escape routes and make sure they are clear. The escape doors and windows can be easily opened.
- Go outside to make sure that your street number is clearly visible. If not, paint it on the curb or install house numbers to ensure that firefighters can find your home as soon as possible.
- If there are infants, older adults, or family members with mobility limitations, make sure that someone is assigned to assist them in the fire drill and the event of an emergency. Assign a backup person as well, in case the designee is not home during the emergency.
- Tell guests or visitors to your home about your house's fire escape routes. When staying overnight at others' homes, ask about their escape plans. If they don't have a plan in place, help them make one. It won't take long but will be of great significance in the case of an accident. This is especially necessary when children are permitted to attend "sleepovers" at friends' homes.
- Once you're out, stay out! Never go back into a burning building. If someone is missing, call the fire department dispatcher. Firefighters have the skills and equipment to perform rescues.
