To recap his tips – it’s really important to do the following with your kids and to have this escape conversation. Fire is a very real and deadly risk. My Aunt’s entire house burned to the ground when I was a teenager and my very good friend from business school lost both of his beautiful sons in a house fire on Christmas Eve night only 2 years ago.
Fire can be devastating and it’s so important we prepare our children for the WHAT IF scenario.
1. Talk about 2 ways to exit every room
2. Practice this routine – both in day & night so the kids are prepared for that worst case scenario.
3. Remind everyone that once you escape the house – you do not go back in the house – under any circumstance. Everyone will meet outside.
Please share how you have prepared your family about a fire escape plan or a fire prevention plan by leaving a comment below by January 31st, 2012. We’ll giveaway a $50 gift card to Bed, Bath & Beyond to 2 lucky winners.
