We rather prevent fires than extinguish them!

Most fires are caused by unsafe acts, equipment failure, arson, or acts of nature.

Top 10 Tips for Fire Safety
  1. Install smoke alarms on every level of your home, inside bedrooms and outside sleeping areas. And test your smoke alarms every month by pushing the test button! Roughly 50% of home fires occur during the night while people are sleeping.
  2. Keep fire extinguishers where you’re most likely to need them – the kitchen, laundry room and garage.
  3. Never leave food cooking unattended.
  4. Avoid using portable and fixed space heaters, as heating equipment is the second leading cause of home fire deaths.
  5. Always have two ways out of the home or building.
  6. Practice your home escape drill twice a year.
  7. Smokers smoke outside and use deep, sturdy ashtrays.
  8. Inspect and clean the chimney every 12 months.
  9. Use sturdy fireplace screens to catch sparks.
  10. If a fire occurs in your home, GET OUT, STAY OUT and CALL FOR HELP!
