Take time to go over some what if scenarios with your family. These should cover all kinds of emergencies:fire, intruder, injuries, etc.
Fire- go over all of the exit possibilities in case of fire. Doors, which windows are accessible, make sure all windows and doors are in good operating condition. Even if they are not often used, open and close them regularly. Even oil if needed.
Security- What to do in case of an intruder while home. Hiding spots, easy exits, safe room, even self defense.
Injury- Go over possible scenarios and figure out the best option for each. Including first aid supplies, emergency phone #'s, neighbor's who can help
If you see a story in the news, think about what you would do.
