Have an escape plan

If you have a fire it is important that everyone in the home, including guests who may not be familiar with the layout of the property, know what to do.

Plan an escape route and make sure that children and childminders or babysitters know it.

  • Practice the escape plan together with your children.
  • Be carefeul to keep all exits clear.
  • Think about how you would get out if your escape route is blocked.
