Home Fire Safety Tips

1.  Install smoke detectors on every level of the home and inside every bedroom

  • Check smoke detectors monthly.
  • Change smoke detectors batteries at least yearly.

 2.  Give space heaters lots of space.

  • Use them at least 3 feet away from anything combustible.
  • Never leave them on while you sleep or when not at home.

 3.  Always stay in the kitchen when cooking.

 4.  Keep dish towels and other things that can burn far away from the cooktop.

 5.  Never put out a small grease fire with water. 

  • Instead cover the pan and remove from heat until the fire is extinguished.

 6.  Have chimneys, fireplaces, and furnaces inspected and serviced frequently.

 7.  Don't overload extension cords or run them under rugs.

 8.  Never leave a candle unattended.

 9.  Do not place a candle in a location where it can be blown over or accessed by children or pets.

10.  Develop a Family Fire Escape Plan

  •  Practice this plan regularly.  Practice exiting the house blindfolded in case you are blinded by smoke.
  • Determine a family meeting place away from the house.

 11. In a fire don't waste time getting dressed, searching for valuables.  Just get out.


Never go back inside a burning building.
