Escape Plans

  • Draw out your escape plan and post it in your home.  This will help you think about the various exit possibilities and the pros and cons of each one.
  • Visit this detailed website on fire escape planning. 
  • Practice your plan at least twice a year. 
  • More people are installing burglar bars on their windows. Replace the bars if they cannot be opened from the inside. They should have a safety latch to allow you to open them.
  • Caregivers need to practice so they will know how to alert, lift and move the person for whom they are responsible, and everyone will know what to expect.
  • Once you are outside, stay there until it is determined to be safe to re-enter.
  • Download a blank escape planning sheet.
