Plan your fire escape routes now

5/2/2022 (Permalink)

A fire, whether at home or work, can be dangerous if an escape route is blocked.

Most of us rely on GPS to get us from point A to point B.  But, if you’re home or at work, and a fire happens, do you know where to go, and the safest route to get there?

Once the smoke alarms or smoke detectors go off, you may panic a little bit, not knowing exactly what is happening.  Things are happening quickly, and if there’s heat and smoke in your vicinity, you may become disoriented.

Take time NOW, to know what’s the best routes out of your home and business are.  Also, does your family (when at home) or coworkers (when at work) know the routes as well?  Do they know the safest place to meet? 

You should practice the route, to make the route like second nature.  Michael Jordan didn’t get to be the best NBA player without practicing.  Practice the route, especially if you have kids, because you and they may only get one chance to be right if disaster does happen.

Have a safe place to meet outdoors, so that everyone can be accounted for.  Don’t depend on phones to text each other, because not everyone might not have had a chance to get their phone.  But, if you DO have your phone, and are unable to get to the safe place, then by all means text or call right away.

SERVPRO Bedford Park/Burbank wants everyone to be safe when disaster strikes.  Once everyone is safe and accounted for, THEN call the fire cleaning experts at 708-430-3600.
