Why home escape planning and practice matter

  • Home escape planning and practice ensure that everyone knows what to do in a fire and is prepared to escape quickly and safely.

  • Today’s homes burn faster than ever. You may have as little as two minutes to escape safely from the time the smoke alarm sounds.

  • When the smoke alarm sounds in a real fire, it’s too late to start making a plan.
