One of the most important things homeowners with 2 storey or more houses need is a fire escape plan. Part of this plan should be the installation of a fire escape ladder.
If a fire breaks out in your home in the middle of the night and you wake up with flames and smoke coming up the stairs. What do you do? You only have about 30 seconds to make up your mind and get out of there.
If you don’t have a plan, you are trapped and chances are you will be killed by the fumes.
Here’s a video to help you choose the best fire escape ladder for your home. You should have a permanent fire escape ladder installed by your window to help you get out incase of an emergency.
