Teach your children how to escape on their own in case you cannot help them. Teach them to feel the door before escaping. If the door feels warm, or if there is smoke on the other side, they should stay inside and call the fire department from the apartment. Teach them to signal for help at the window with a light-colored cloth or a flashlight.
Push the button on your smoke alarm to start your home fire drill. Practice what to do in case there is smoke. Get low and go. Get out fast.
