Apartment Evacuation Plan

Apartment emergency procedures begin with a plan. Planning and awareness are key to fire safety when living in an apartment complex or other type of multi-family structure.


Tips on Fire Escape Plans

  • Draw a floor plan of your apartment.
  • Plan, draw and discuss your escape plan with other occupants.
  • Make sure that windows and screens can be easily opened.
  • Provide alternatives for anyone with a disability.
  • Practice your plan at least twice a year, making sure that everyone is involved.

In the event of a fire emergency, these steps to stay safe:

  • Be prepared- Create an escape plan for the evacuation of the building and practice it with the escape plan for your apartment.
  • Building Fire Safety- Make sure your apartment has working smoke alarms. Speak to your apartment manager if you see a damaged smoke alarm, fire extinguisher, or an emergency light that has burned out. Don’t prop open exit or stairway doors.
  • Stay Calm- Move to the exit and call the fire department once you are outside. Before you exit the building stay low and check for smoke or fire in the hallway. If the hallway is safe, follow your building’s evacuation plan and never use an elevator to escape a fire.
  • Wait outside for the Fire Department- If you hear the fire alarm, leave immediately. Once you are outside, move away from the building. Give firefighters and fire trucks plenty of space and wait until they tell you it’s safe to go back inside.
