Home Escape Planning: Everyone must know what to do and where to go in the event of an emergency. When the Smoke Detector goes off you and your family need to be able to exit the house quickly and safely!

Some tips for planning your escape.
Calling 911 – If you have an emergency please do not call your neighbour or someone you may know who volunteers on the local Fire Department. Precious time is being wasted, especially if the person you are trying to contact is not home.
Once you are safe call 911. Try to leave your line open so that emergency services can call you back whether on your cell or at the neighbours if required.
Always memorize your home 911 [street] number, especially when visiting someone’s house. Nothing is more frustrating for emergency services than not having an exact address. We want to be able to get to you as quickly as possible.
