  • Make a map of your home (PDF, 632 KB). Mark a door and a window that can be used to get out of every room.
  • Choose a meeting place outside in front of your home. This is where everyone can meet once they’ve escaped. Draw a picture of your outside meeting place on your escape plan.
  • Write the emergency telephone number for the fire department on your escape plan.
  • Have a grown-up sound the smoke alarm and practice your escape plan with everyone living in your home.
  • Keep your escape plan on the refrigerator and remind grown-ups to have your family practice the plan twice a year or whenever anyone in your home celebrates a birthday.

Smoke alarms and home fire escape planning

  • If there is a fire in your home, there will be smoke.
  • A smoke alarm will let you know there is a fire.
  • A smoke alarm makes a loud noise – beep, beep, beep.
  • When the smoke alarm sounds, get outside and stay outside.
  • Go to your family outside meeting place.

When you go home today, be a smoke alarm detective

  • Ask a grown-up to show you where the smoke alarms are in your home.
  • Ask a grown-up to test the smoke alarms to make sure they are working.
