4. Have an Escape Plan

What would your family do if your house caught fire? Would everyone know what to do? The experts advise coming up with a plan that everyone has a part in should the house catch fire or some other emergency takes place. Ours is that the kids will leave the house though the front door or their windows.

My husband and I will grab the pets and make sure all the kids have made it out. We will all meet at the big tree in the front yard before taking the next step. Of course, we have a backup plan too, just in case. Come up with something similar and run through it often so no one forgets. On a side note, you should have smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors on every level of your home and check them often.
