Your Safety is Most Important!
Did you know that if a fire starts in your home you may have as little as two minutes to escape? During a fire, early warning from a working smoke alarm plus a fire escape plan that has been practiced regularly can save lives.
Top Tips for Fire Safety
- Install smoke alarms on every level of your home, inside bedrooms and outside sleeping areas.
- Test smoke alarms every month. If they're not working, change the batteries.
- Talk with family members about a fire escape plan and practice the plan twice a year.
- If a fire occurs in your home, GET OUT, STAY OUT and CALL FOR HELP. Never go back inside for anything or anyone.
4 Steps to take immediately after a home fire:
- Calk 9-1-1. Give first aid where needed.
- Let friends and family know you're safe
- People and animals that are seriously injured or burned should be transported to professional medical or veterniary help immediately.
- Stay out of fire-damage homes until local fire authorities say it is safe to re-enter.
