According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission more than 6000 deaths from fires occur in homes each year. Most people die from the smoke and toxic gases rather than from the fire itself. One of the most important safety aids is a smoke detector, which alarms the family and adds precious moments for a fast escape.
Family members should design fire escape routes that designate two exits from each room. Second story rooms may need a rope or chain ladder to aid in the escape. Parents may not be able to get to their children, so they must teach them how to help themselves in case of a fire.
Agree on a meeting place outside your home so that parents and children can identify missing family members. Decide ahead of time who is going to get the baby. You don't want to get outside to point fingers and say "I thought you got the baby."
