Test Your Smoke Detectors Each Month!
When it comes to protecting yourself and your family, installing a smoke detector is crucial! Install a smoke detector on every level of your home and one in each sleeping area. Electrical smoke detectors with battery back up and carbon monoxide combination devices are required by local building codes. Working smoke detectors will provide you with an early warning in case of fire. The few minutes of early warning may be the difference between life and death. Remember to check each detector at least once a month and replace batteries every year.

Plan and Practice a Fire Exit Drill!
Know two ways out of each room, especially bedrooms, since most fire deaths occur at night while you are sleeping. Make an escape plan and be sure each member of your family is familiar with it. After your plan is complete, remember to hold trial runs! Have a designated meeting area so you know if everyone is out. Once you are out, DO NOT go back in!

Fire Safety in the Kitchen!
The majority of burns and home fires start in the kitchen. Be sure pan handles on the stove are turned in so they will not be bumped or touched by small children. Do not wear loose clothing while cooking. If a fire starts in a pan simply smother it with a lid. DO NOT pour water on a grease fire! Have a fire extinguisher in your kitchen that is rated for all types of fires. Never leave your cooking unattended; fires start and spread quickly. Keep your cooking areas clean and grease-free.

Heating Equipment
Regular maintenance of your heating equipment will insure comfort and safety during the cold months of winter. Have your furnace cleaned and serviced each year by a QUALIFIED TECHNICIAN before the heating season. Keep space heaters at a safe distance from combustible materials such as papers, curtains, bedding, clothing, etc., and always unplug it when youíre not using it. Follow your manufacturerís instructions. Use only proper fuel in each heating appliance. Improper use of heating equipment is dangerous.

Electrical Fire Safety
Electricity is a dangerous fire hazard. Check all electrical cords for fraying or loose connections. Replace any damaged cords before using them. DO NOT overload outlets or extension cords. Electrical wires can get very hot and start a fire. If your circuit breaker or fuse trips, find out why it happened so you can repair the problem. Always replace a fuse with one of the same size. Protect young children from electrical shock by placing plastic outlet covers in receptacles that are not in use.

Fire Extinguishers
Stop small fires before they get big! Fire extinguishers can prevent a small fire from becoming a big fire. Keep an approved fire extinguisher on hand and easily accessible in case of a small fire. A fire extinguisher kept in a kitchen, garage, or basement and near a fireplace or small stove will allow you to put out a fire a soon as it starts. If a fire starts in your home, you can try to put it out with a fire extinguisher, however you or someone else should call the fire department to be safe. All fire extinguishers should be tested yearly and recharged if necessary.

Safety is Paramount!
The US Fire Administration (USFA) estimates that annual property loss resulting from fires is $8.6 billion. It is estimated that 90% of fire related deaths among children under the age of 5 occur in homes without a functioning smoke detector. Also, house fires are the number one cause of accidental death for children under the age of 5. According to the USFA, nearly 5,000 Americans die in fires each year.Donít become a statistic!
