occur in the home, with most of the fatalities taking
place between 2 am and 4 am, while occupants are
asleep. That is why it is critical to develop an escape
plan, because one needs to react quickly with a fire:
• practice your plan at night, getting down on your
hands and knees with a flashlight while crawling to
safety. Heavy smoke impairs breathing, which is why
staying close to the floor increases chances of escape.
• In order to be able to react quickly to fire, draw a
floor plan of your home showing all possible exits
from each room. Where possible, plan two exits: a
main route and an alternate route from each room.
• If you live in an apartment building, develop your
