Practice evacuating your family and pets from your home once every three months.
If you have fire extinguishers and smoke detectors test them out before the drill
to be sure they are functioning properly. Train children to use a fire extinguisher before the drill.
Show them how to use it in your backyard. In the event of a real fire find a safe place outside
of your home for your family and pets to meet up. Also try the drill at night.
Get out as quickly as possible, just as in a real fire. Stay low to the floor to avoid inhaling "smoke".
Have a kit prepared to grab on the way out in your drill. It should be full of emergency supplies such as pet carrier, pet ID, medical information with medications, licenses, extra leash, a picture of you with your pet, water bottles, blankets, clothing, and spare money. Know the physical place your pet hides when frightened.
