Have you ever practiced a fire drill at home? Whilst you may not think it will be too difficult to get yourself out in case of a fire, what about your child / children? If they're young they can't even get out of their cot by themselves. What would happen if there was a fire in the middle of the night and, in the smoke and panicked confusion, you made your way outside before you realised that no-one had grabbed the baby? Draw up a fire drill program, being a list of what to do, who / what to grab, and where to go once you are outside. Practice regularly. In a real fire, the more that is second nature and the less that needs to be thought about - the better off you will be.
