October Tips of the Month: Fire Safety Tips
  • Install smoke detectors on every level of your house and outside sleeping areas.

  • Keep smoke detectors dust free -- regularly vacuum over and around the detector.

  • Replace batteries at least yearly and whenever it starts to make a chirping noise.

  • Keep a fire extinguisher in the kitchen, garage and workshop.

  • Learn how to properly use the extinguisher.

  • Extinguishers are for small fires only. If there is a large fire, get out immediately and call 911 from another location.

  • Plan two escape routes from each room and practice them with the entire family. Designate an area where everyone will meet once they are away from the fire.

  • If you must escape through smoke crawl low under the smoke to your exit.

  • Practice STOP, DROP AND ROLL with your children. If your clothes catch on fire, stop where you are, drop to the ground, cover your face with your hands and and roll over and over to smother the flames.

  • Pots on stovetops should always have their handles turned toward the center of the stove where children cannot reach up and pull them off.

  • Keep matches, lighters, and candles out of the reach of children.

  • Never smoke in bed.

  • Don't smoke when you are drinking or abnormally tired.

  • Never dump an ashtray into the trash without wetting the butts and ashes first.
