Please take a moment to go read the article and then come back here to see how this news has affected our family and what we’re doing about it.
Did you read it? I’ll wait here another moment while you go hug your children…
There. Welcome back.
Today, my family is taking the time to go around to all the windows and make sure they open freely (they have not since we moved here, because they are painted shut). We are discussing and practicing emergency situations with our children and making sure they know what to do. Today we are focusing on fire emergencies and holding home fire drills.
Our kids have learned the following and yours should too!
I pray we never have to use these skills. I pray we never have to find out if they will save our lives. But I know it’s better to be ready than to be caught totally unprepared. We will be holding home fire drills every month at different times to practice what we’ve learned.
Do YOU have a family emergency plan? Have you ever held a home fire drill? Do you have any tips for us or our readers?
