Every home should have at least one working smoke alarm.
Seniors citizens are especially vulnerable because many live alone and can’t respond quickly.
Take the mystery out of fire play by teaching your children that fire is a tool, not a toy.
Practice an escape plan from every room in the house.
When home fire sprinklers are used with working smoke alarms, your chances of surviving a fire are greatly increased.
Portable heaters need their space. Keep anything combustible at least three feet away.
When using appliances follow the manufacturer’s safety precautions.
Never overload circuits or extension cords.
