Fire Prevention Week Oct. 3-9, – Smoke Alarms & Home Fire Escape Planning

The State Fire Marshal’s Office offers the following tips for making your home fire escape plan:


  • Make a map of your home.  Mark a door and a window that can be used to get out of every room.
  • Choose a meeting place outside in front of your home.  This is where everyone can meet once they’ve escaped.  Draw a picture of your outside meeting place on your escape plan.
  • Write the emergency telephone number for the fire department on your escape plan.
  • Keep your escape plan on the refrigerator.  Practice your escape plan with everyone living in your home twice a year.
