- Plan according to your abilities. Be sure your caregiver knows your escape plan, too.
- You have the legal right to live where you choose, but people are safest during a fire if they live on the ground floor, and near an exit.
- Smoke alarms can vibrate the bed or pillow, use a strobe light, play a recording and include carbon monoxide detectors.
- Sometimes people place strobe lights outside the house to attract the attention of neighbors when a smoke alarm is sounded.
- Keep a phone near your bed.
