Plan together now

Take everyone into account

  • Make your fire action plan with everyone in your household, especially children and elderly or diabled people

Your best escape route is your normal way in and out of your home

  • Decide on a different route as well, in case the normal one is blocked
  • Keep all escape routes clear

Tell everyone in your household where you keep your door and window keys

  • You can be safe as well as secure if you make sure that anyone who needs to get out in an emergency can easily open doors and windows.

When it's safer to stay in your home

  • If your escape route is blocked, it may be safer to stay put and protect yourself until the Fire Brigade arrives
  • Find a suitable room now. Choose one with a window that opens and, if possible, a phone so that you can call 999
