One of the most devastating things a family can face is the loss of a home due to fire. It's life changing, and potentially fatal if people aren't out in a timely manner. We at SERVPRO of Cedar Mill / Oak Hills can help you prepare the family for any future house fire emergency with these tips:

  1. Install the right number of smoke alarms: Check the batteries. Always do a smoke alarm test every month.

  2. Teach your children what smoke alarms sound like. 

  3. Ensure that all household members know two ways to escape from every room of your home and know the family meeting spot outside of your home.

  4. Establish a family emergency communication plan and ensure that all household members know who to contact if they cannot find one another.

  5. Practice escaping from your home twice a year. Yell "Fire" to alert everyone to escape to the safe meeting location

  6. Make sure everyone knows how to call 9-1-1. Have your address written somewhere safe so children can help first responders in a timely manner.

  7. Teach family members to "stop, drop, and roll" in case their clothes should catch on fire.
