Create a home escape plan

Having a home escape plan in conjunction with a working smoke alarm will greatly increase your chances of getting out safely.
Every second counts.

Draw a floor plan of your home, including two ways of escape from each room. Plan an escape route and ensure everyone knows how to get out.

Blocked exits are a hazard. Keep exits clear.

Keep door and window keys in or next to locks so they can be opened easily.

Decide on a meeting place outside e.g. the letterbox.

Provide alternatives and someone to assist for anyone with a disability.
