Liable for damages?

Practice for a fire step by step
Do your own fire work at your home. It will take no more than a few minutes, but can save lives.
Gather all who live in the home. Tell everyone what to do.
Determine a repository: Agree about a place outside the home where you will gather if it's burning. Choose a place to see the house.
Make an evacuation plan: Go from room to room and talk about how to get out of that room if it starts to burn there. Talk that the smoke is poisonous and how to crawl under it to get out. Do you live in an apartment, talk about what happens if it burns in the staircase - close the door and use other roads if it's going to be high, it's alarmed and then stay visible to the emergency service in windows or on balcony that applies .
Check your escape routes: Make sure all doors and windows are accessible. Remove things that stand in the way. Always use the front door, first hand, balcony or balcony doors and third-hand windows. Do you live high up, discuss whether you can get out of a balcony or window with a folding fire ladder that you can have at home.
