While fire safety may seem like an obvious concept to many, it is important to have a clear plan and ensure your children know how to react if there is a fire. 

In case of a fire
Have a designated spot you can all meet safely if this disaster occurs in your home. This way you can quickly identify who is missing and still needs to evacuate the building. 

The U.S. Fire Administration also noted how quickly a small flame can turn into a devastating blaze. Always putting out fires completely before leaving the home or falling asleep is crucial. Even a tiny candle can lead to a disaster. 

Also, it is crucial to emphasize that you and your family do not have time to grab any valuables. Because fire can consume a building so quickly, every second must be utilized to escape as safely as possible. 

Fire safety 
The National Fire Protection Association noted smoke alarms can help keep you and your family safe. Routinely conduct an alarm system inspection and check that these devices are working properly and also bring your kids along to teach them how to check for proper installation and operation.
