Abington Fire Helps Plan Your Escape
Recently the Company had the opportunity to share best practices when it comes to families creating their Home Escape Plans with 6ABC.
This years Fire Prevention Week theme was: “Fire Won’t Wait. Plan Your Escape.” Home Escape Plans are an essential method in ensuring all family members know what to do in case of emergency. Below are some of the essential steps to creating a plan of your own.
- Make a home escape plan by drawing a map of your home/apartment including all doors and windows, ensuring you plan for two ways out of every room.
- Have an outside meeting place (such as a tree, mailbox, lightpole, etc) a safe distance from the home.
- Practice your plan regularly, with all members of your family, at varying times of day to ensure all are ready in an emergency.
