When traveling for business and staying in a hotel, know your escape routes. As soon as you are settled in your hotel room, step outside the door to your room and locate your closest emergency exit. Next, count the steps it would take to get to that exit. That way, if emergency lights are not working or are somehow obscured, you can still find your way to the exit.
