Escape Plans

If there is a fire in your home, it will be much easier for you to escape if you have already thought about the best way to get out.


The best escape route is the normal way in and out of your home.


Make sure you have easy access to your keys so you can get out quickly.


Think of any difficulties you may have getting out, e.g. at night you may need to have a torch to light your way.


Choose a second escape route, in case the first one is blocked.


Keep all exits clear of obstruction, like bicycles.


If there are children, older or disabled people or pets, plan how you will get them out.


Practice and communicate your escape plan with everyone in your home including visitors.

If you have a pet, you may want to consider leaving something in accessible place should there be a fire in your home and you are not at home. We have a form attached which you could fill in and it would help firefighters and neighbours decide what to do with your pet until you arrive back home. Click here to download the form
