Fire Safety

Basic home fire safety is essential for protecting yourself, your family, and your property from the devastating effects of fires. Here are some key tips to enhance fire safety in your home:

  • Test all smoke detectors each month and change the batteries when needed.
  • Install a smoke alarm in every room of the house.
  • Leave 3 feet of open space around space heaters.
  • Keep matches and lighters out of reach of children.
  • Always remain in the kitchen when cooking.
  • If a fire occurs, “stay low and go” and “get out and stay out.”

By implementing these basic fire safety measures, you can greatly reduce the risk of fires in your home and increase the chances of a safe evacuation in case of an emergency.
