  2. Fire Safety In the event of a fire, it is important to remember that TIME is your biggest enemy and every second counts! In less than 30 SECONDS a small flame can grow out of control and turn into a major fire. The following are important aspects that will help you and your family prepare for a fire and remain safe.

  3. Be Prepared In the next few slides we will discuss the importance of the following: • A Smoke Alarm • Making an Escape Plan • Practicing Fire Safety • What to Do After a Fire

  4. Smoke Alarms • A smoke alarm is the FIRST key step toward your family's safety • A smoke alarm is critical for the early detection of a fire in your home and could mean the difference between life and death. • You MUST advise your Property Manager if your smoke alarm is not working properly.

  5. Escape Plans • An Escape Plan will help you and your family get out of your home quickly. • Children as young as three-years old can follow a fire escape plan if it is practiced often. • Practicing your escape plan and fire-safe behaviors on a regular basis can mean the difference between life and death for your family.

  6. Escape Plan • Make sure each family member knows two routes (windows and doors) of escape out of every room. • Assign adult family members who will get babies and toddlers who cannot escape on their own. • Keep exits clear of debris and toys. • Have a safe meeting place outside the home.

  7. Teach Your Children • Teach children that firefighters are there to help in an emergency. • Teach your children to crawl and stay low to reduce smoke inhalation. • Teach your children how to touch closed doors to see if they are hot - NEVER open a hot door. • Teach children never to go back inside, once in the safe meeting place.

  8. Points to Practice • Practice escape plans every month. • Plan two ways out of every room. • Immediately leave your home when a fire occurs. • Never open doors that are hot to the touch. • Designate a meeting location outside and away from your home. • Once you are out, stay out!

  9. Fire Insurance • In case of a fire your property may be damaged directly or as a result of its proximity (for example: water and smoke damage due to a neighbor’s fire below you, above you, or next to you). • Having fire insurance pays the cost of replacing your property. • Fire insurance can be affordable. Your Resident Services Coordinator can help you find fire insurance quotes that may fit your household budget.

  10. After a Fire Recovering from a fire can be a physically and mentally draining process. • Work with Property Management, your Resident Services Coordinator, your insurance agent, and other local and government agencies (for example: Red Cross, Salvation Army, etc.) to acquire needed aid and assistance.
