Do you have an escape plan are you fire ready?

You and your loved ones are your most valuable possession. That’s why it’s important to create a fire escape plan for your home and complete our Home Fire Safety Checklist.

Have you thought about how you would escape your home in the event of a fire?  Do you and your family know what to do and where to meet? 

Families who are well-prepared are more likely to escape their homes safely and without panic.  

Its important to that all family members have and know your home fire safety plan, draw out a plan of your house using the template and instructions on our Home Fire Safety Checklist. 

Family members should know the basics of every plan:

  • The two quickest ways out of every room
  • How they will exit from upstairs if  your home has a second storey
  • An agreed meeting place outside, such as the letterbox
  • How they will call 000  

Provide alternatives for anyone with a disability or the elderly.  Its important to have a fire escape plan for home but its also important to ensure your elderly loved ones have and know their escape plan, with people over 65 making up over one third of house fire fatalities in Australia. 

Get out as fast as you can, do not stop for packing. Meet at the prearranged meeting place outside and check everybody is there.

Once you are out of the building, stay out. Never enter a burning building.
