What Can You Do To Prepare For A Fire?

  • Plan an easy escape route. You should make sure that hallways, stairs etc. are clear.
  • Plan an alternative route in case your first choice is blocked by fire. You should make sure everyone in the property knows the plans.
  • Have a designated place to keep door keys on your exit route. The keys must be kept here so that everyone can access them in case of a fire
