Choose the date and time of your evacuation drill and the fictitious location in the home where the fire would start.
Check that your smoke detector alarms are working properly before conducting your evacuation drill. If they are connected to a central monitoring station, inform your provider first before testing them.
Conduct an evacuation drill at least once a year, involving everyone living in your home, following these steps:
Sound the smoke alarm.
Time your evacuation.
Evacuate your home, according to your evacuation plan, trying to do so in less than three minutes.
Once outside, proceed to the meeting point.
Review your evacuation and make improvements for the future.
