Fire drill with the fam

firedrillWith the bushfire season upon us, and living in a bushfire prone area, this mother of 6 is beginning to feel quite a responsiblity with her young brood.  So it was, I insisted that we decide on a definate fire plan and practice it with the children,  and this INCLUDES me learning how to use the fire pump associated with our dam!  Our plan is of course to leave as early as we can, however, as we have been made aware by Black Saturday this is not always possible if the fire is imminent and we can see flames closeby.  So we now have a plan and now I KNOW how to turn the fire pump on!  It was quite a sight tonight when I got saturated after being successful in my first attempt!  Gave the children quite a laugh in an otherwise serious excursion to the dam!  Do you live in a fire prone area?  Do you have a plan?
