Fire Safety Tips

Install and Maintain Smoke Detectors:
Test them every week, following the manufacturer's directions. Don't ever borrow detector batteries for other uses - a disabled smoke detector can't save your life!

Plan and Practice Escape:
With your family, plan two ways out of every room. Once you are out, stay out! At least twice a year, have the whole family practice the escape plan.

Space Heaters Need Space:
Space Heaters Need Space:
Keep portable and space heaters at least 3 feet from anything that can burn. Never leave heaters on when you leave home or go to bed.

Smokers Need Watchers:
Smokers Need Watchers:
Provide large, deep ashtrays for smokers and put water on butts before discarding them. Before going to bed, check under and around sofa cushions for smoldering cigarettes.

Be Careful Cooking:
Be Careful Cooking:
Never leave cooking unattended. If grease catches fire, carefully slide a lid over the pan to smother the flames, then turn off the burner. Never put foil or other metals in a microwave oven.

Matches and Lighters Are Tools:
Matches and Lighters Are Tools:
In the hands of a child, matches and lighters are deadly. Store them up high where kids can't reach them, preferably in a locked cabinet.

Use Electrical Safety:
Replace any electrical cord that is cracked or frayed. Don't overload extension cords or run them under rugs. Don't tamper with the fuse box or use fuses of an improper size.

Cool a Burn:
Cool a Burn:
If someone gets burned, immediately place the wound in cool water for 10 to 15 minutes. If the burn blisters or chars, see a doctor immediately.

Stop, Drop and Roll:
Stop, Drop and Roll:
Everyone should know this rule: If your clothes catch fire, don't run!! Stop where you are, drop to the floor, cover your face with your hands to protect your face and lungs, and roll over and over.

Crawl Low Under Fire:
Crawl Low Under Fire:
Smoke is dangerous! If you encounter smoke, use an alternate escape route. If you must exit through smoke, the cleanest air will be several inches off the floor. Crawl on your hands and knees to the nearest exit.
