Fire Prevention Safety Tips:

  • Ensure there are operational smoke alarms located;
    • In each room used for sleeping purposes
    • Outside each separate sleeping area in the immediate vicinity of the bedrooms
    • On each additional story of the dwelling, including basements not including crawl spaces and uninhabitable attics.

(Both photo and ionization technologies are recommended)

  • Sleep with bedroom doors closed, especially in a two-story home where the bedrooms are located near an open stairwell. This can allow extra time for escape or rescue.
  • Have a family escape plan with two ways out. Ensure everyone is aware of the plan and practice it at night. Be sure children can open their bedroom windows. If the window won't open make sure they know it's OK to breakout the glass.
  • Have a designated meeting place outside of the home and do a head count. Once out, never go back inside. Especially if there are small children, they might follow you back in.
  •  Perform a home fire safety inspection.
