Fire Safety Tips

In Case of Fire

  • Dial 911.
  • Do you have an escape plan?
  • Do you have 2 ways out of you home?
  • Do you practice your escape plan by holding fire drills in your home?
  • Once you're out safely, stay out until help arrives.

Smoke Detectors

  • Do you have a smoke detector installed on every level of your home?
  • Do you check your detector to insure that it is in proper working order?
  • Change your batteries at least twice yearly (spring and fall when you change your clocks).

Candle Safety

  • Place candles in a proper container, open, in an uncluttered area, and with nothing above the flame.
  • Never leave a child unattended in a room with burning candles, or accessible matches and lighters.
  • Never leave the house or go to sleep with candles lit.
