Do you have a Family Escape Plan?
Having a Family Escape Plan helps to reduce panic and will protect your family from a fire started inside your home. Knowing how to quickly and safely get to your meeting place, then call 911, can save lives and property.
Follow these simple steps to develop a family escape plan;
Get together as a family and draw a floor plan of your home, marking all windows and doors.
- Show two ways out of each room in case your main route is blocked by smoke or flames. Make sure that windows can be easily opened.
- Show working smoke alarms!
- Agree on an outside meeting place where every family member will wait for the fire department.
- Call 911 after you are safely out. Never go back in for any reason.
- Plan for those requiring help; infants, our elderly & pets.
- Practice your plan together.

IT IS ALWAYS TIME TO CHECK SMOKE ALARMS!
Replace smoke alarms that are older than 10 years old and batteries as needed. Early detection is key to your survival. Remeber to check your batteries in the your carbon monoxide detectors also.
Carbon Monoxide is known as the "Silent Killer"
It is an invisible, odorless gas that comes from burning fossil fuels such as gasoline, wood, propane and oil. When these fuels burn incompletely, CO is produced.
Carbon Monoxide Detecxtors ARE NOT Smoke Detectors!
The termination of fire season removes fire prevention restrictions on equipment use and the use of fire for debris burning. However, you must call before you burn to determine if it is a burn day.
