FIRE SAFETY TIPS FOR THE HOME
Install smoke detectors:
Be sure to have smoke detectors in all sleeping areas and on every level of your home including the basement. Have a smoke detector either in each bedroom or in the hall adjacent to the bedroom.
Test the batteries in your smoke detectors monthly, and replace your batteries when you turn your clocks forward or back for daylight saving time. If you are hearing impaired, use a tested and approved smoke detector that triggers a strobe light.
Prevent Clothes Dryer Fires:
The dryer directly outside of the home - never to a room inside the house. Venting a gas dryer inside is especially dangerous because the exhaust can contain a combination of combustible gases including Carbon Monoxide.
Install a hard metal duct from the dryer to the outside of the house.
Clean the lint trap after every use.
Never leave burning candles unattended.
Don't place lighted candles near paper, draperies or clothing
Be kitchen wise:
Never leave cooking unattended.
Wear clothes with tight fitting sleeves when cooking.
Keep stove surfaces free of clutter and built-up grease.
Always have a lid or some type of non-combustible flat surface to put over a pan fire to smother it out.
Never use water on a stove top grease fire
Family Escape Plan:
Keep all doors and windows so they operate easily and quickly.
Know two ways out of each room (think doors and windows).
Have a meeting spot outside the house.
Have all members of the family practice "Stop, Drop and Roll."
