You’re at home in your recliner, a mug full of a steamy beverage in hand. Kids are napping, and the house is quiet. The curtains are drawn on the window, revealing a hushed snowfall and a gray sky. There’s a crackling fire in the fireplace, giving off a relaxing ambiance and scent. All is right in the world . . .
. . . Except for the pillow lying in front of the fireplace. Your eyes are closed, you’re falling asleep, only to awake to a “Whoosh!” sound. The fire isn’t safely enclosed in the fireplace anymore. It’s now in your living room. What do you do in this situation? Do you have a plan?
If you do not currently have a fire evacuation plan for your family, now is the time to make one.
Practice. Do a drill, and if your children need to improve on speed, let them know. Practice again and again if you need to.
