Got Kids? Have a Fire Drill in Your House!

Exit drills in the home (EDITH) are fire drills for your house, and they are a must for all families with children. Schools have long known that the only way to safely and quickly evacuate kids is to conduct drills, and your home is no different. To stage a drill, just gather your family, pick a meeting place outside of the home that everyone can remember (like the end of the driveway, a tree, or a swingset) and talk about how the kids will get there from their bedrooms and other rooms in the house. Then press the "test" button on your smoke detector and practice your plan! This very simple procedure ensures that kids will recognize the smoke alarm and react appropriately to it, and go to a spot where parents and arriving firefighters can know for sure that everuone is safely out of the house.
