Be Especially Vigilant Around Holidays

Holidays are often a time of lighting candles, putting up lights and spending additional time in the kitchen. Check that last years light cords are working  and turn them off before bed. Try battery operated candles verses flames. And keep any real tree at least 3ft away from a heat source. 

Make A Household Plan

Residents should have a fire escape plan for everyone in their household – including pets. They should review the plan and practice their escape procedures together as a group to ensure that everyone knows what to do

Install Smoke Detectors

Most home fire deaths happen when people are asleep, so it’s critical that residents have working smoke detectors in their homes to provide an early warning.

Unplug Appliances When Not In Use

unplug items – especially curling irons and straighteners – before dashing out the door.
