Within your home, make sure in case of a fire you have an E.D.I.T.H. plan. This stands for Exit Drills In The Home. This plan will ensure that everyone in your home knows how to get out safely in the event of fire and that there is a safe meeting place for everyone to gather, such as a mailbox or neighbor's driveway. When the fire department arrives, you are able to tell the firefighters everyone is safe and out of the house. IF any member of your family does not get out safely and is not at your designated meeting place, DO NOT go back inside the house. Advise the firefighters where in the house the person is. This will allow the firefighters to quickly find and remove your loved ones from the home on fire.
