October is Fire Prevention month, however, we should practice good fire prevention all year round. Please take the time to review the information below and feel free to visit the links to the websites provided.
STAYING SAFE WITHIN YOUR HOME
Make a fire escape plan for your family. Find two exits out of every room. Pick a meeting place outside. Practice makes perfect – hold a family fire drill at least twice each year.
Install smoke alarms on every level of your home. Put them inside or near every bedroom. Test them monthly to make sure they work. Put in new batteries once a year.
Know how to put out a small pan fire by sliding a lid over the flames.
Teach every family member to “Stop, Drop and Roll” if clothes catch fire.
Consider having a home fire sprinkler system installed in your new home, or when you remodel.
Learn how and when to use a fire extinguisher.
If you have a fire in your home, once you get out, stay out
