Would you know what to do if your smoke alarm went off in the middle of the night? Would you and your family be able to escape?
It can be difficult to think clearly in an emergency. The situation may quickly change and an entire floor of your house could be filled with dense toxic smoke just seconds after the smoke alarm goes off. It may be dark as well, making it even more difficult to find a way out.
Even if you already know what to do, you need to talk about it to everyone who lives in or visits your home. Making an escape plan in advance and practising it regularly can save lives.
