No one wants to think about a house fire but it’s important to be prepared.

Hopefully your family already has a fire escape plan but an often-overlooked element are fire escape ladders.

This compact yet fully functional ladder will protect you and your family by providing a safe, reliable means of escape.  It’s important to measure the windowsills and purchase one for each upstairs room.

Once you’ve made the purchase, make sure every family member knows where they’re stored and how to use them.  It’s a good idea to have a practice run so that everyone will be comfortable using them in the event of an emergency.
