HOW TO PROTECT YOUR HOME WITH FIRE SECURITY

PROTECTING YOUR HOME

Some simple steps can help protect your family and home from the devastation of a fire.

  • Ensure adequate smoke alarms are throughout your home.
  • Keep a fire blanket within easy reach in your kitchen or around any open flames.
  • Have a fire extinguisher handy in the kitchen (fire extinguishers expire, so check them regularly and replace when necessary.)
  • Don’t leave cooking unattended.
  • Turn off heaters before going to bed or leaving the house.
  • Clean the lint filter on your clothes dryer after each load.
  • Don’t leave electric blankets on for more than 30 minutes.
