Lightning: Fire Disaster Plan

Material provided by Federal Alliance for Safe Homes http://www.flash.org/

The time to plan for a fire emergency is now. Take a few minutes to discuss with your family what actions you will need to take. 

Contact Numbers

Post your local police, emergency management and firefighting agency's telephone numbers in a visible place. 

Evacuation Plan

Decide where you will go and how you will get there. Unlike evacuating for a hurricane, with fire you may only have a moment's notice. Two escape routes out of your home and out of your neighborhood are preferable. 

Pets

Have a plan for evacuating your pets

Family Fire Drills

Practice family fire drills. Make sure everyone knows at least two escape routes from your home.
