11-5-14 Plan a family escape route

Plan a family escape route and meeting point.  New homes are safer, in part, because building codes require that bedrooms have properly constructed egress points in the event of necessary evacuation.  You will want to make sure that everyone living in your home understands how to escape and where to go rendezvous with you.  Understand the priorities…get out of the house first, and then call for help.  It’s always good to practice what you would do in the event of an emergency.
