Home Escape Plans

Your family's home fire escape plan needs to show:

  • All the rooms in your home
  • Two ways out of each room
  • At least one smoke alarm in or near each sleeping area and on each level of your home
  • A meeting place outside the home
  • A path from each room to the meeting place

It is recommended to have a fire drill with your family at least two times a year.
