Fire Escape Plan

CfE Experiences and Outcomes

I know and can demonstrate how to keep myself and others safe and how to respond in a range of emergency situations. HWB 2-17a.

1. Connecting the Learning - Ask the class if they would know what to do if there was ever a fire in their house? Explain that they are going to learn what actions they should take if there ever was a fire in their house.
   
2. Sharing the Learning Outcomes -

• I understand the importance of a Fire Escape Plan and have practised it
• I understand that everyone in the home must be aware of the 
Fire Escape Plan
• I know that if there is a fire to Get Out, Stay Out and Call 999
   
3. Active Learning - Use the interactive whiteboard to play the ‘Fire Action Plan’ activity. Children can work in pairs or as individuals to find a safe route out of the house. Explain to the class that one of the best tools we have to keep us safe from fire is a smoke alarm.

Questions to consider are:

a. Do you have a smoke alarm?
b. Where can you get a smoke alarm if you do not have one in your house? (Phone the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service for a free Home Fire Safety Visit, they can fit a smoke alarm for free)
c. Where is the best place to have a smoke alarm? (On the ceiling in the hall and upper landing area)
d. How often should you test your smoke alarm? (Once a week)
   
4. Demonstrating Understanding - Ask pupils to think of the things that they could do to help make it easier if the ever needed to escape from a fire i.e. close doors before going to bed, test their smoke alarm once a week, make sure their bedroom floor is clear so then have a clear path of escape, Do not charge mobile phones at night.
   
5. Review and Recall - Go round the class ask them to give one example of something that they could do to help i.e. close doors before going to bed, test their smoke alarm once a week, make sure their bedroom floor is clear so then have a clear path of escape, Do not charge mobile phones at night. Record this if you have time.
   
6. Home Learning - Ask pupils to go to www.gosafescotland.co.uk and download a blank Fire Escape Plan. Pupils should complete the plan with their family and consider practising it.
