EDITH is an acronym that every family should know. EDITH stands for Exit Drills In The Home. The idea of practicing EDITH is to prepare you and your family in the event of a fire. Part of an EDITH is to find the best way out of your house and the best place to meet outside, ideally a static, recognizable object such as a large tree or outside your neighbors house across the street. It is best to stay out of the street and away from your home to protect yourself and your family from danger.
