You and your family need to consider:
|The speed of fire and the toxicity of smoke means you don't have time to think.|
|Furniture and clutter will obstruct each person's passage.|
|Use deadlocks that don't lock on the inside.|
|If keys are required, leave them in a safe spot near the door or window and ensure everyone in the house knows where they are.|
|Limit the number of keys needed to open doors by having locks keyed alike.|
