Make sure all family members know what to do in the event of a fire. Draw a floor plan with at least two ways of escaping every room.
Test windows and doors
Do they open easy enough? Are they wide enough? Or tall enough?
Choose a safe meeting place outside the house.
Practice alerting family members. It is a good idea to keep a bell and flashlight in each bedroom.
Practice staying low to the ground when escaping.
Install smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.
