  • How would you and your family get out of your home if there were a fire?
  • How would they escape from the second or third floor?
  • What would you do after everyone is out of the house?

Operation EDITH

"Exit Drills in the Home"



Never go back inside

your home for anything!

  • All occupants should know two ways out of every room in their home.
  • Draw your plan and highlight escape routes.
  • Decide on a meeting place outside your home.
  • Practice your escape plan.
