Below are quick list of fire safety tips for your home:
Smoke Alarms – Have a working smoke alarm outside each sleeping area at minimum.
Home Escape Plans – Develop one and practice it.
Fire extinguisher – Install an ABC fire extinguisher
by your exit door nearest your kitchen. Have it checked annually by a
qualified technician to ensure that it will work.
Fire on the Stove – Put a lid on it, turn off heat and let it cool before disposing.
Fire in the Oven – Leave the door shut and turn off the oven.
Clothes Dryers – Clean dryer, including behind it and vents at least annually of built up lint.
Gasoline – Store gasoline and other flammable liquids outside your home in a separate shed, not the carport that is part of your home.
Chimneys – Clean chimneys and flues regularly. Clean
the flue after every cord of wood to prevent creosote buildup and
prevent a chimney fire.
