A home invasion is 400 times more likely to occur than a school fire. If schools deem it necessary to run fire drills, how much more should families see fit to run home invasion drills? In their recent article entitled, “How to Run a Home Invasion Drill: Practicing the Plan,” Home Security Northwest explains the recommended steps for practicing preplanned safety procedures, to prepare families in the event of a break in.
The first step is to designate an initiation signal, a noise or phrase that tells everyone that it’s time to rush to the safe room. Once inside, Home Security recommends that the family talk through each item included in the safe room so that all of the family members know what to expect in the actual event of an emergency.
“Before leaving the safe room,” the article explains, “Discuss the exact route everyone should take to get out of the house.” Whether it’s through a window or out the back door, everyone should have a clear picture of where to after everyone exits the safe room.
Finally, the article emphasizes that fact that the family should designate a specific assembly point outside. Once the family has escaped the home, moving everyone away from the scene of the crime is imperative. A swift and organized transition to a safe location in the event of an emergency requires planning ahead.
