Fire Safety Tips at Home


Look for places fire could start. Take a good look around your home. Identify potential fire hazards and take care of them.

Listen for the sound of the smoke alarm. You could have only minutes to escape safely once the smoke alarm sounds. Go to your outside meeting place, which should be a safe distance from the home and where everyone should know to meet.

Learn two ways out of every room and make sure all doors and windows leading outside open easily and are free of clutter.

Setting an Escape Plan

Discuss an escape plan with your family and practice on a regular basis AND always have 2 WAYS OUT! Make sure you set up a Muster Station so everyone knows where to gather once they go outside.
