Fire Safety Tips
Keep Your Home Safe:
- Install a smoke alarm outside each sleeping area and on each additional level of your home.
- If people sleep with doors closed, install smoke alarms inside sleeping areas, too.
- Test each smoke alarm once a month. When necessary, replace batteries immediately. Replace all batteries at least twice a year.
- Vacuum away cobwebs and dust from your smoke alarms weekly.
- Smoke alarms become less sensitive over time. Replace your smoke alarms every ten years.
- Keep one or more working fire extinguishers in your home and know how to use them.
Make a Plan:
- Consider installing an automatic fire sprinkler system in your home.
- Plan escape routes. Determine at least two ways to escape from every room of your home.
- Consider escape ladders for sleeping areas on the second or third floor. Learn how to use them and store them near the window.
- Select a location outside your home where everyone would meet after escaping.
- Practice your escape plan at least once a month.
