n evacuation plan lays out how to exit a building safely during an emergency. Every member of your family should be familiar with several ways to leave the house and know a safe meeting place outside the building.

According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), your ability to exit your home in the event of an emergency depends on advance warning from smoke and carbon monoxide alarms, as well as advance planning.
In case of a fire, carbon monoxide leak, earthquake or other emergency, everyone in your family should be familiar with your home evacuation plan.
