Escape Planning With Young Children

Test your smoke alarms when your children are present, to be sure they know what the alarm sounds like. Ask them:

  • What do you do when the alarm goes off?
  • Where do we meet outside?

Have your children practice escaping from bedrooms

Studies have shown that children may sleep so soundly a standard smoke alarm may not wake them. Because they respond better to the sound of their parent's voice, consider a vocal smoke alarm.
