How to Make a Fire Escape Plan

Posted on March 10th, 2010 No Comments

In the event of a fire in your home or business, every second counts. In less than 30 seconds a small flame can grow into an uncontrollable blaze. It only takes a few minutes for an average house to fill with smoke. Preparing and practicing a fire escape plan is extremely important.

Develop an escape plan for your home or office and practice the plan every month. It is a good idea to practice escaping from every room in your home. The best escape plans allow for two ways to leave every room. If a primary exit is blocked by fire or smoke, a secondary route like a window, could be a life saver.

Designating a meeting place outside the home is an important part of developing a good escape plan. Choose a meeting location away from the home where everyone can meet. This will ensure nobody is hurt looking for someone who is already safe.

Good fire safety takes practice. A fire alarm and suppression system are vitally important to your safety and the safety of your investments. When you need inspections, repairs, or installation, only the best will do. Please contact the Austin fire alarm experts of Ace Fire Equipment today by calling 512-835-2020.
