Safety tips: Home Fire Drills


Do you know EDITH? The acronym stands for Exit Drills In The Home.

You may have participated in fire drills here on campus, but have you ever had a fire drill at your house? The New Mexico State University Fire Department would like to remind you of how crucial it is to know how and where to evacuate your house in case of an emergency.

Be sure to know what doors and windows you are able to open and get out of at any time, and make sure your children and anyone else living in your home also know these exits. It is extremely important to practice fire drills at your house and on campus so that you know where to go and feel confident about your plan.

The more you talk about the possibility of an emergency and practice what actions to take, the more likely you will be to act appropriately in a real emergency.
