Fire Safety Tips
General Fire Safety Tips
  • Keep children away from open flames and electrical receptacles.
  •  
  • Make sure your smoke alarm is maintained and working properly. Have a smoke alarm in every level of  your house.
  •  
  • Keep your emergency numbers near the telephone.
  •  
  • Always call the fire department for any fire, even if the fire has been completely extinguished.

Teach your children what to do in case of a fire - get low and get out of the house - go to the designated meeting place - never go back in the house for a toy or pet.

Have a fire evacuation plan and practice it with your family!

Using these simple rules coupled with common sense will help to lead your family in preventing a tragedy from happening in your home.
