Plan - If a fire occurs in your home, you have to get out
fast. Sit down with your family and work out an escape plan in
advance. Be sure that everyone knows at least two unobstructed
exits - including windows - from every room. (If you live in an
apartment building, use the stairs, not the elevator to escape
from fire.) Decide on a meeting place outside. Have your entire
household practice you escape plan at least twice a year.
Space Heaters - Keep portable heaters and space
heaters at least three feet (one meter) away from anything that
can burn. Keep children and pets away from heaters, and turn them
off when you leave home or go to sleep.
