Every household should have some sort of escape plan in place just in case the worst was to happen. Hopefully you will never have to use it, but it is important to prepare for it so there is no delay when it is put into action.
If you prefer to create your own, then please follow our safety advice below.
Plan together as a family ensuring that all the children in the household know the plan and what to do in the unlikely event of fire occurring. Special arrangements need to be made in consideration of any elderly people who may like with you and how you will implement the escape.
The Escape Route
Ensure that the escape route is practicable and can be carried out. Have regular talk though so its always fresh. It is also advisable to have a room in which you could all stay in if the worse was to happen. It would be suggested that this room also has a telephone so you can summon help. Make sure all the children know your address in case they have to telephone themselves.
Shout for Help
Only escape from a window if you are in immediate danger from the fire. When in the room it is advisable to put bedding or clothes at the bottom of the door to stop the smoke coming in before you all have escaped. If there are two adults, then one should drop first to enable the children to be lowered before being dropped, don’t jump. If you are escaping from a upper bedroom throw out the mattress or bedding to help cushion the landing.
Please note: Whilst in the perfect world, it would be ideal to leave your house keys in your door locks for an easy escape, we do find ourselves in a society where this is not practicable due to theft etc. If you are worried about the security of your home, it is advised that your keys should be left in a safe and suitable place, and that all the family are fully aware of where they are, should the worse happen.
The wild fires in Greece are an example of what can happen in extreme adverse weather conditions. Although it is unlikely that we will have the same conditions here in the UK.
