Be sure to have a family

FIRE ESCAPE PLAN Pets are family too!

www.saobserver.net

• Have a designated meeting place outside your home • Plan two exits: a main route and an alternate route • Have an escape ladder installed in homes more than one story or where windows are too far from the ground for a safe exit • Sleep with doors closed to reduce the spread of fire into your bedrooms • Make sure babysitters and guests know the escape plan • For those that need assistance, assign someone to their aid

Friday, October 6, 2017 Page Z7

• Kitchen fires due to cooking oil or grease igniting into flames causes the fastest-spreading and most destructive type of residential fire. • Keep a pan lid or cookie sheet handy in case grease or oil catches fire. The lid or cookie sheet should be slid over the top of the pan to smother the fire. • Never attempt to move a flaming pot or an away from the stove. The movement can fan the flames and so spread the fire. The pan will also likely be very hot, causing you to drop it.
