Storyboard Text

  • 1. Most fires happen at night, between 11 P.M. and 6 A.M. Smoke Detectors are important to survival and need to be installed on each level of the home and outside of bedrooms.
  • 2. Have a home fire escape plan with your family.  Draw out your home and map out 2 possible exits for each room. Designate a meeting place outside of the house.
  • 3. Practice your plan with your family.  Practice using your primary exit route and again with your secondary route.
  • If possible sleep with your bedroom doors closed. In the event of a fire they can hold out fire and smoke, increasing your time for escape
  • When awakened by your smoke detector, roll out of bed and crawl to your bedroom door. Test the door with the back of your hand, for heat. Feel it high, low and touch the knob. If the door is hot, DO NOT open it, and use your secondary exit to escape. If it is cool, open it carefully and be ready to slam it shut if there is smoke or fire.
  • Go to your designated meeting place. Have someone go to a neighbor's to call 9-1-1. Once you're outside, you should never go back into a burning building.
