Know Where All Of The Exits Are
Make sure you know the easiest way to all doors and windows. It might sound obvious, but sometimes your front door might not be accessible depending on the emergency. During the hussle and bussle of everyday life, it isn’t easy to keep halls and stairways but it’s very important that you do.
Remember that you and your family are much more important than any possessions you may have.
Know Where To Shut Things Off
If you’re having problems with water, electricity or gas, the best thing that you can do to keep both you and your home safe is to shut off the supply of these utilities so long as it doesn’t put you at risk doing so.
Simply knowing these key areas of your home is important though, as it will help a professional diagnose and solve the emergency much faster.
If you see arcing of electricity of any kind, smell gas or that the level of water might start to become dangerous, make sure to stay a safe distance away from the area affected and seek professional help.

Make Sure That Everyone Knows The Plan
It’s just as important that your family or housemates know the plan as much as you do. If everything rests with one person and an emergency starts without them present it could lead to panic.
It’s a good idea to put together a folder of information in a convenient place that everyone is aware of, that has numbers for emergency trades in your area as well as the most important steps to take.
It’s also a good idea to go over what to do in the event of an emergency every 6 months, especially if you care for children and make it clear that emergencies don’t need to be as scary with proper preparation.
