Home Fire Escape Plan
Updated On: Jan 07, 2012

Home Fire Escape Plans

It's important to have working smoke alarms in your home.  Along with that, you need to have an escape plan and practice it twice a year.

The following was copied from the NFPA website:

In 2010, there were an estimated 369,500 reported home structure fires and 2,640 associated civilian deaths in the United States.

Fire can spread rapidly through your home, leaving you as little as two minutes to escape safely once the alarm sounds. Your ability to get out depends on advance warning from smoke alarms, and advance planning — a home fire escape plan that everyone in your family is familiar with and has practiced.

Facts and figures

  • Only one-fifth to one-fourth of households (23%) have actually developed and practiced a home fire escape plan to ensure they could escape quickly and safely.
  •  One-third of American households who made an estimate thought they would have at least 6 minutes before a fire in their home would become life-threatening. The time available is often less. And only 8% said their first thought on hearing a smoke alarm would be to get out!

 

Use the escape plan checklist attached below to make your own escape plan.  For more information visit the NFPA website.
