  1. Have an escape plan and practice it with your family.  Know two ways out of your house in case one way is blocked by smoke or fire. Designate a place outside where the whole family will meet.
  2. Go low in smoke. Smoke rises, so stay close to the ground and you'll be able to breathe a bit better.  Use the back of your hand to test if a door is hot before you open it.  If it is hot, try to find another way out.
  3. Stop, Drop and Roll. If your clothes catch fire, this is the best way to put the fire out.  Running makes the fire burn faster.
  4. Matches and candles are not toys. Let the adults handle them.
  5. Smoke alarms save lives. Ask your parents to make sure you have a working smoke alarm on every floor of your house.
