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.
