Have An Exit Strategy
What is an Exit Strategy?
An exit strategy is a plan for exiting a building in an emergency. When entering a building, it is critical you locate at least two ways out, keeping in mind that the way you came in (usually the front door) may not be the best way out.
Why is it important to know at least two ways out of the building?
Any exit can become blocked during an emergency, so having at least two or more alternative exits can save your life.
Why is it important to keep exits and exit passageways clear of obstructions?
Passageways blocked by objects, such as boxes, band equipment, stacked merchandise or garbage bins, etc., can, in a fire or other emergency, cause people to fall, seriously hurt themselves and even block the exit passageway for others. Keeping exit passageways clear of obstacles enables people to exit a building more quickly and safely.
