That's a good point. Though, I want to be versed in both methods. I don't know what an emergency will look like and don't know if my plan to fight a way to the door is realistic. Plus, having kids at the other end of 40'- I want to make sure we all know ways (plural) to get out.
I am ordering a set of 5 fire extinguishers- for the truck, bedrooms, and living room. And I'm really hopeful that my hometown fire station will help us out with teaching us how to use them (bonus points if they give us hands-on practice with them). I also have been sent links to online courses for fire extinguishers.
I don't know why, but this experience really shook me up.
